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.

Important notice: Justice for the Undocumented Campaign (JFU)
From the Irish Missionary Union and Conference of Religious in Ireland: 'As we move closer to the general election we want to share opportunities to take action. Recently the Justice Committee recommended to the Minister for Justice and Equality to introduce a regularisation scheme as currently being proposed by JFU. This was a significant and very welcome development.
'We feel a regularisation is unlikely this side of a general election but think it’s vital to keep it alive in minds of political candidates and parties going into 2016. Never before has there been so much awareness of the situation of undocumented migrants in Ireland and support for a solution....We’re asking ALL VOTERS who support a regularisation to write to our Minister for Justice NOW.
