She made the world a better place

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of Sr. Marie Theresa Plante, FMM.

Sr. Marie Theresa was the first representative of Franciscans International at the United Nations in New York. She has dedicated her life to make our World a better place and to defend the rights and the dignity of all those that are discriminated and oppressed.

With gratitude, we will always remember her and we are sure that she enjoys now the presence of our saviour that she followed in her life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with her community of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.

On the behalf of Franciscans International,

Markus Heinze, ofm
Executive Director, Franciscans International
