Our Mission

The Society of African Missions is a missionary society of priests and brothers dedicated to the proclamation of the Good News in Africa and to peoples of African origin.

The SMA Thumbprint Campaign – developed by the SMA Justice Office – seeks to invite us to engage with positive action regarding the damage we are doing to our environment. The Letter of Pope Francis – Laudato Si’ [On the care of our Common Home] – and the December 2015 UN meeting in Paris on Climate Change spells out clearly the options before us – do nothing and we head towards an uninhabitable world, not for ourselves but for those coming after us OR act now, for a sustainable future for our planet and our descendants.
