The first missionary religious congregation for women in the history of the Church and the world is the Institute of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary founded in 1877 by BL. Mary of the Passion, now in the 138th year of its course.
Franciscan in its essence.
Missionary in its services
Mary - like in its approach.
* Dedicated to universal mission
* Daring to answer the needs of our times
* Seek strength from the Eucharist
* And offer ourselves in challenging services.
