The FSM Sisters came from all over the Southern Highlands Province for this important yearly gathering. The meeting is held in an atmosphere of prayer and reflection. It gives the Sisters the opportunity to consider important aspects of their consecrated religious life and ministry.
Franciscan Sisters of Mary are serving in the Diocese of Mendi and also in the Diocese of Wabag. They are involved in many different ministries: teaching, health care, pastoral ministry and the formation of young women who are considering a vocation to consecrated religious life.
The FSM were founded by the late Bishop Firmin Schmidt, OFM Cap., and are an integral part of the diocesan family. They are loved by the people for their simplicity and kindness. Let's all continue to pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated religious life.
