Lay Associates
of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary


We, the Lay Associates of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary,
envision a community of equals dedicated to the Gospel way of life
as exemplified by Mary, St. Francis and Blessed Mary of the Passion.

Answering the challenges of our Christian vocation as far as our circumstances as lay persons will allow, we commit ourselves to:

- Prayer and the Eucharist as a mission in itself;
- Offer ourselves in service to our brothers and sisters, especially those in need, in collaboration with the FMM and /or the local Church;
- Live and work for justice peace and integrity of creation;
- Live simply in fidelity to the Gospel and proclaim by word and deed the Good News to our families, our neighborhoods, our places of work, etc;
- Walk faithfully with the Blessed Virgin Mary as we live out our call as Lay Associates;
- To grow in community spirit.


- Involvements in the Church Liturgical and Pastoral Ministry;
- Prison Visitations;
- Justice and Peace and Ecology Projects' involvements;
- Inter-religious Dialogue (Especially between Christians and Muslims);
- Catechetical ministry;
- Projects for the Indigenous Peoples (with FMMs – we have several communities inserted with the IPs);
- Visit to the Sick;
- Assistance to the victims of natural calamities;
- Witness to the Gospel spirit in their places of work and families and neighborhood.
