SINGAPORE – Forty-seven Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM) (photo) from Malaysia and Singapore gathered at the FMM House of Prayer and Formation at Holland Road from Nov 21-27 for their provincial meeting (also known as “chapter”). The theme of the chapter was “Walking in minority and solidarity with the suffering world”.
This chapter had two moderators – Christina Kheng who assisted the Sisters in synergising their ideas for the practical aspects of the pastoral plan, and Sister Inigo who imbued the plan with spirituality.
The pastoral plan the FMM Sisters drew up focuses on the poorest and the excluded, particularly the migrants.
Franciscan Spirituality and having a loving and caring presence with the people make up the other two priorities.
This was also in keeping with the General Chapter orientations of 2008.
