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.

News and Events

Best wishes for peace and good health in 2018 to all our friends and supporters. At this time, MMMs in our Motherhouse provide peaceful spaces in the lives of ordinary people. Others build networks to eliminate the crime of human trafficking. We also mourn the unexpected loss of one of our Sisters in Uganda. You can read these stories in our January e-newsletter.

A Thought for Prayer
We welcome you to visit a new feature at our website Prayer Space. Until now we have called attention to the needs of our Sisters serving in various ministries and have asked our friends to pray for them. We also invited you to add your own prayer intentions. MMMs and Associates pray daily for your concerns, especially at our MMM Motherhouse, at our care facility, Aras Mhuire, and at our house in Somerville, MA, USA. Our elderly and infirm Sisters particularly have this mission of prayer, presence, suffering and a contemplative stance toward the world.

We are especially conscious of the deep hunger for meaning and spirituality today. At our 2015 Chapter we called ourselves to mutually deepen and share our charism (gift) with our MMM Associates, co-workers and others.

We are now introducing A Thought for Prayer to our Prayer Space. It consists of a short monthly quote, taken from sources that express our spirituality and gift of healing. These may be the writings of our foundress, our documents, other faith traditions or inspirational figures. An image or picture will accompany the text to help reflection. May it help you to find space for reflection in your life.
