Support the Missions

The Congregation of Sons of Mary Mother of Mercy is an indigenous male Religious Congregation founded by Most Rev. Anthony Gogo Nwedo, C. S. Sp, the first bishop of the Diocese of Umuahia, Nigeria in 1970. It is a Missionary Congregation of Priests and Brothers and the first indigenous Religious Congregation for men founded in Africa by an African, for a worldwide mission.

The purpose of its foundation is to work for the glory of God, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and for the salvation of souls. The Congregation enjoys the Charism of bearing witness to the Mercy of God, following the footsteps of Christ the Savior and Mary our Mother of Mercy. This Mercy is expressed in compassion, forgiveness, and kindness.

The priest members of the Congregation teach in schools and minister in parishes, while the members who are religious brothers make sacred vestments, teach in schools, teach Catechism in parishes, and care for the sick and needy.

Some of our members are working in Nigeria, while others work in Cameroun, Ghana, Canada, the United States of America, Italy, Germany, Luxemburg, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.

As a religious order, we are committed to instilling morality, discipline, and the fear of God in the minds of people through Catholic School education. Our target is the education of the poorest of the poor. At present, we have school classroom-building projects which are still under construction. We humbly solicit your generous support to help us complete these projects.

Moreover, based on the poor economic situation of Africa, especially Nigeria, where our seminarians undergo their seminary formation, it is virtually difficult to cater to them. We solicit your financial support and sponsorship in their training to the Catholic priesthood.
