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 13 countries around the world. Sisters come from 20 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.
We have 4 more stories of MMMs who mark 50 years of religious commitment in 2020. We congratulate one of our Sisters celebrating a century of life. MMMs in the USA and Honduras tell us how COVID-19 is affecting them. You can read these in our July-August e-newsletter.
News and Events
In December 2019 ‘a virus that has not previously been seen in humans was identified in Wuhan, China. The first cases were identified in people working in a seafood and live animal market. It is thought that humans picked up the virus from animals at the market. In February 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially named this new coronavirus ‘COVID-19’ (Website Government of Ireland: Department of Health).
How our lives have been turned upside down in a few short weeks! The situation changes daily and every country in the world has been affected. Impacted in a wide variety of ways, MMMs and MMM Associates are responding in whatever situations they find themselves.
Our MMM Constitutions tell us to ‘be present to the peoples of today. Share their joy and hope, their anguish and struggle.’ We especially draw strength from prayer at this time as we go where human need is greatest. ‘Let the whole world be taken up in the prayer of your heart, penetrated by it, healed and recreated in love.’ In the midst of fear and uncertainty, we remember the words of scripture: ‘Do not be afraid; I am with you’ (Is 41:10).
