We are becoming a CIO

Our Organisation moving forwards

The Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) is currently set up as a Charitable Trust, which has served the organisation well. FMDM sisters sit as Trustees and run the organisation.

Looking forwards and planning for the longevity of our organisation with an aging population of sisters, we are making changes to move over to three Charitable Incorporated Organisations. This will enable non FMDM sisters to become our future Trustees, which isn’t possible with the current structure.

What does this mean for the Franciscan Centre?

Essentially, from January 2023, the Franciscan Centre will become a new ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’ focusing on the newly refurbished centre, open and welcoming guests.
