St. Francis Group of Institutions in Mumbai are a chain of Christian Religious Minority Educational Institutions located in the Western Suburbs of India’s Financial Capital Mumbai. St. Francis Group of Institutions have today become a pride of Mumbai and India’s most sought academic community for its focus on excellence in value based education and beneficial & educative extracurricular activities. 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.
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!
