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
MMMs in Nigeria dance for joy at celebrations of Jubilees and Final Professions.
You can read the stories of some of these women and how MMMs have worked to bring light into the lives of others in our January e-newsletter.
Raising awareness about fistula
As you know, we have many stories to tell about MMM and we use many different means to tell them. The Global Sisters’ Report, a project of the US-based National Catholic Reporter, aims to highlight the activities of women religious throughout the world. We recently featured the work that MMMs have been involved in for women affected by vesico-vaginal fistula. It appeared in the Global Sister’s Report on 31 December, in the form of an interview. You can read it by logging onto GlobalSistersReport.org and clicking Ministry and Q & A. Some of you may already be seeing it in e-mail form. Please click Say Thanks at the bottom of the article. We plan for more to come!
