The Family Prayer Mission is a lay Catholic apostolate, founded in 1989 by Rappai Nedumpara in Toronto, Canada. Since then, FPM is committed to evangelization programs and also social awareness programs on various topics. In 2015, FPM shouldered the responsibility to have a Vincentian Retreat Centre in Toronto, the Divine Retreat Centre. Operations are under the auspice of the Archdiocese of Toronto, overseen and taken care of by the Vincentian Congregation. FPM’s annual Lenten retreat attracts over a thousand people each year, which is a fundamental tool of evangelization within the greater Toronto area. FPM also engages in an education support program, which assists qualified children from underprivileged families from Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya.
Family Prayer Mission strives to assist families in achieving sanctity and stability within a secular society by following the motto: The family that prays together stays together. Families must practice family prayer and grow as God-centred families to become a driving force to promote the importance of marriage and family.
