Who We Are
Who We Are
“We have one freely chosen and beloved, fixed ideal … it is the Immaculate. For Her let us live, toil, suffer, and long to die”. These are the words of St. Maximilian Kolbe, and this is the ideal of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. Living a life of total consecration to the Immaculate in obedience, poverty, and chastity.
Our Life and Charism
Thus do we love to formulate the manner of Franciscan life of a Casa Mariana (or Marian Friary), in which observance prevails of the Rule and Constitutions according to the model of primitive Franciscan communities and after the recent example offered us by St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe.
The F.I. Family
The Franciscans of the Immaculate are a religious family made up of many members. There are first order (Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate), second order (Poor Clares of the Immaculate) and third order (Mission of the Immaculate Mediatrix) communities which make up the FI Family.
