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.

Sr. Maura O’Donohue, MMM, died on 5 May 2015. Maura worked for many years with the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development (CAFOD), the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Their staff prepared a moving tribute to a tireless worker for the poor and marginalized. Read more here.
