Today, after 118 years of its inception the Franciscan Brothers continue their commitment of training young minds and finding solutions to address tomorrow’s challenges.
St. Francis Group of Institutions are established and run by the Franciscan Missionary Brothers, an International Organisation headquartered at Borivali (West), Mumbai. Rev. Bro. Paulus Moritz has founded the CONGREGATION OF THE MISSIONARY BROTHERS OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI in the year 1901 with the vision of reaching out to the poor and the less privileged. Bro. Paulus Mortiz was appointed as the first Superior General of the Congregation of the CMSF. He worked tirelessly for the welfare of the Brothers and the missions. His famous dictum was: “As long as you look after the poor, God will look after you!” He was a man with a deep spiritual conviction and of prayer and contemplation. He knew that only a deep religious person could become a great missionary, and he formed his Brothers in that pattern.
It was a relentless pilgrimage for him and his early companions in the mission of the Lord, serving the poor and needy at all costs in the villages of the entire country wherever they had been called to from 1901 till date, the inspiration of our Founder continues in the Brothers’ Love and Service to the Indian people and beyond. Starting missions all over India, guiding the Brothers through many vicissitudes and storms for more than four decades, Bro. Paulus Mortiz relinquished the office of Superior General in 1941. He was called for his eternal reward on 19th November 1942 after a brief illness, which he joyfully accepted as a prelude to his heavenward journey.
May he intercede for us, his children, from his heavenly dwelling to keep the mission of love to all, especially to the down-trodden and marginalized!
