Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate
A community of prayer, of poverty, of penance, in the spirit of total consecration to the Immaculate Virgin in the manner of St. Maximilian Mary, so that She may transform us, like St. Francis, into Jesus Crucified, and may let us be consumed in the conquest of all souls for God.
Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate
What distinguishes this Institute from others is the Marian Vow of Unlimited Consecration to the Immaculate that animates and permeates the three classic vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. This gives a ‘Marian flavor’ to our entire life.
Our Patron Saints are:
- St. Joseph, Spouse of the Virgin Mary
- St. Francis of Assisi
- St. Clare of Assisi
- St. Maximilian Kolbe
- St. Pio of Pietrelcina
