The Marian Franciscans
Ad Jesum per Immaculatam
Our prime objective as missionaries is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ by means of devotion to the Immaculate for the greatest glory of God and for the salvation of all souls. As Christ came into this world through our Lady, we, too, seek to abandon ourselves to Her maternal protection, in order to unite ourselves to Christ most perfectly. It is through Mary that Christ enters the world, and likewise through Her that we enter into His Kingdom.
Hence, with friaries in Gosport and Portsmouth, we are here to promote the importance of consecrating ourselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary for the benefit of our own souls and for those of the whole world . Following the recent example of Saint Maximilian Kolbe - ardent devotee of the Immaculate - we use the media as a key tool for our apostolate.
The Friends of the Marian Franciscans supply the friars with their daily needs.
