Redemptorist missions in Nigeria

There are thirteen Redemptorist communities in Nigeria and parochial ministry is our first priority. We are working to develop mission preaching and have an organized team that preaches in areas where they have been invited. Devotion to Mary is also being promoted and we have acquired land from the Bishop of Enugu to develop a National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.

We have a dedicated retreat house and our formation houses are filled with students preparing for missionary work. In the area of initial formation we are collaborating with the Redemptorists of Ghana.

As Redemptorists we continue our commitment to the most abandoned, both economically and those suffering spiritual abandonment. Our parish in Abuja has an orphanage and as well as working with orphans we engage in apostolic work with the destitute, and prisoners. We have a Redemptorist Youth and Vocations Ministry which is established in all our parishes and a group of lay people, known as the Friends of the Redemptorists, support and assist us in our apostolic works.
