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
In our October e-newsletter, you can read how two MMM Associates became more aware of God's love in their lives and reached out to others as bearers of peace and reconciliation. Sister Danielle Darbro participated in the MMM Heritage Experience and found that it expressed another aspect of our spirituality: our belief in the inter-connectness of all creation.
October 18 is European Day against Human Trafficking
The crime of human trafficking is rampant in every country. Ireland is no exception, with 311 victims detected by or reported to the Gardaí between 2012 and 2016. The majority of victims were women, mainly for sexual exploitation. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Victims are held, not only in big cities, but in towns and villages.
On October 18 we can help one another to become more conscious of this crime. We can look out for the signs and reporting suspicions to Crimestoppers at 1800 25 00 25 or to Gardaí. Some of the signs are:
• Adults or children who rarely come out of a house except with a guardian and speak little or no English
• Home delivery meals that result in excessive packaging regularly left outside
• Men arriving and leaving residential premises at unusual times
• Teenage girls who seem unhappy, living with older, unrelated males, who drive them about
• Commercial premises, including restaurants, that survive despite a clear lack of regular business
You may wish to use this Evening Prayer today.
We welcome you to join
