Philothea Missionary Sisters - PMS
Philothea missionary Sisters are called to an “active missionary apostolate” of formation and education of Christ’s Faithful. Inspired by the writings and teachings of St. Francis de Sales under the guidance of our Founders (Rev. Fr. George Kocholickal and Rev. Sr. Florence Kabbalah), we strive to form and educate Christ faithful through our daily contemplative prayer life, formation programmes, education, Catechetical programmes, seminars, retreats for both adults and youth, vocation promotion, Marriage and Family Programmes, counselling, publications and any other service that meets the needs of Church in our times.
The special charism of the Philothea Missionary Sisters is an interior discipline expressed primarily through the practice of two virtues: “Love” and “Holiness” lived in gentleness. Our motto is “Love and love alone is the hallmark of our spirituality” – St. Francis de sales
