H.E. Mme Elisabeth Beton-Delègue, Ambassador of France to the Holy See conferred on October 11, 2021, the insignia of knighthood in the National Order of the Legion of Honour in Rome with the participation of Sr. Françoise’s family members, her friends, and a group of FMM.

In her speech, the Ambassador appreciated Sr. Francoise’s religious life, her ministerial services in many places such as Mexico, to Motozintla in Chiapas, Honduras in Sierra particularly in rendering service in the Franciscan style, developing fraternity as a humble handmaid of the Lord. Her leadership qualities as a superior, provincial, general councilor led her to be elected as the Superior General of the Institute of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary in 2014. Sister Francoise has initiated the present process of transformation to aptly respond to the present-day needs.

Congratulations dear Sister Francoise!

We praise God with you and for you.
