Our Congregation (founded 1911 by Mary Patrick Brennan) inherits the charism of Saint Francis Assisi. The FMSL aim to make GOSPEL LIVING a simple reality. Franciscan life is lived in community. It involves praying, sharing and working together in sisterhood for the spread of God’s Kingdom in and through the Church.


The Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Littlehampton is a Congregation of Diocesan right, following the Rule of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis. We live in accordance with our Constitutions and make public profession of the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience.
