Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood

Who we are

We are an international Religious Congregation of women called to follow Christ in the spirit of St Francis and St Clare of Assisi.
As FMDM we have committed ourselves to live the Rule and Life of the Third Order Regular of St Francis. This Rule of Life begins;
The form of life of the Brothers and Sisters is this: to observe the Holy Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, living in obedience, in poverty and in chastity.
Following Jesus Christ after the example of St. Francis.

Our mission

Our mission is first and foremost to be ‘sister’ to all people and all creation. In imitation of Mary and simply by our presence, we are called to conceive, birth and nurture the life of Christ in ourselves and in all we encounter and those we serve.
In 2019, at our General Chapter, we challenged ourselves to strive to:

• Become Christ,
• Expand our Franciscan Heart,
• Remain Faithful to the Journey,
• Foster inner Freedom to allow the New.
