We are the Franciscan Missionaries of the Infant Jesus. Our charism is directed to helping the world to seek out what is good and positive. We strive to give especially to those little ones wounded by family and social situations the tools to rise up and face life with a sense of joy and dignity. For this reason, within the social context of the USA, we are ready to meet the needs of children through education and personal formation and to provide all persons with the means of spiritual and cultural progress. We hope to assist the laity in maturing in the Faith so that they may be enriched with Gospel values in a society which runs the risk of forgetting the values of the Spirit.
