We are an international congregation of women religious, founded by Mother Mary Martin in Nigeria, in 1937. Desiring to share Christ's healing love, we bring health services to people of different cultures where human needs are great.
MMMs are serving in 14 countries around the world, including our newest mission in the Republic of South Sudan. Sisters come from 19 countries and are trained in a variety of health-related professions. With Mary as our model, our special concern is the care of mother and child and the fostering of family life.
News and Events
In these times when we often hear examples of intolerance, violence and mutual retaliation, it can be helpful to have some guidelines for living with peace and moderation.
You can read about the Rule of Saint Benedict, written over 1500 years ago, which guides the lives of MMMs, MMM Associates and many others, and has much to say to our present world. We tell you about an MMM celebrating 50 years of service and about an MMM Associate who made a memorable trip to East Africa, in our July newsletter.
