The house at Grotta is a patrimony for the FMM. It has been important in the history of the Institute and also of many sisters. The mission of the community today is still that of welcome, open to all. The sisters are faithful to this mission, always making efforts to respond to needs. Despite their advance age, they collaborate in leading various activities, sharing the FMM charism.
The community living in Raipanka works with the poorest in precarious conditions. The sisters undertake long, risky journeys to reach isolated populations. These vulnerable people are often threatend by privilege people and those of a higher caste. Thanks to the sisters, the poor people can benefit from health care given by people whom they trust.
The solemnity of August 15th is very important for us, Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. According to the desire of Mary of the Passion, our Foundress, the Virgin Mary is the Mother and the true Superior General of the Institute.
First “plant” of the Poor Ladies of the Order of Friars Minor, Clare followed St. Francis of Assisi and lived in the convent of St. Damian a life austere, in charity, joy and contemplation. She died in Assisi in 1253.
