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 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
Read about the contributions of older people as well as some MMM stories in our December e-newsletter.
27 November: IMU Inaugural Awards Ceremony - see photograph and details.
6 December: Today MMMs and AMMMs join with the rest of the world in mourning the passing of Nelson Mandela and extend our sympathies to the people of South Africa. Perhaps the greatest tribute our leaders of today can pay to his memory is to emulate his qualities of integrity, courage, justice, and forgiveness. It is a better world because he has walked among us. Farewell, Madiba.
