As a religious congregation in the Catholic Church, the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood, or FMDMs serve God in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi, who deeply loved Our Lady as Mother of the Incarnate.
As Franciscan sisters, we are called to extend Mary's spiritual Motherhood, following Christ and living according to the Gospel.
In union with all Franciscans we now see that our life is formed not around a common place not around a common task, but rather around acommon heart.
Just as St.Francis considered prayer to be the centre of his life, we makecommunity prayer the central part of our lives as FMDMs.
there is no gift or talent that cannot be taken and channelled for Christ within the FMDM calling.
including serving the poor and needy in the spirit of St. Francisan at Plentong, Port Klang, Penang and Singapore
This is what St. Francis longed for with all his heart
Inspired by St. Francis, the FMDMs delicate their lives to the service of God and His people, taking His message of Love as missionaries. We are willing to be sent anywhere - in the footsteps of St Francis - to be a witness of God's love, joy and peace.
Today, FMDMs have the joy of serving as missionaries in many countries throughout the world with vastly differing cultures and lifestyles. The fact that so many of us have beenmissioned has had a profound and varied influence on the life and spirit of the entire congregation.
