There has been a Redemptorist presence in Mozambique since 2002 and there are currently two communities, the Muvamba Mission ministering in a rural area of 54 communities scattered over a radius of 2,500km₂, and the Parish of Our Lady of Graces at Xipamanine in the capital Maputo.

Our work includes projects to provide material help, development and social services. These include a system of sponsorship for families in extreme poverty as well as food for children and undernourished mothers. Additionally, we offer scholarships for students in secondary education and grants for cottage industries.

We are committed to Redemptorist Youth and Vocation Ministries and to beginning initial formation for Redemptorist consecrated life. We are also dedicated to forming missionary groups and by stressing different forms of prayer, the Rosary, the Cross and the Word and through tridua and novenas we endeavour to implant in our parishes a special spirit lacking where people are not accustomed to hearing Jesus Christ proclaimed.
