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, 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.

In our August/September e-newsletter you can read a tribute to the life of Doctor John V. Kelly, who generously shared his skills with many in great need.

A story from Nigeria underscores how the quality of life for families can be improved when there is adequate access to maternal care.
