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. 

To celebrate Bealtaine and the joys of Summer, we offer our visitors a two-minute stupendous visual feast of the wonder of the Earth, captured by Richard Attenborough, and set to the immortal voice of Louis Armstrong singing, “It’s a Wonderful World”.

This short video will help our visitors to more fully appreciate what Schweitzer meant and will surly deepen your sense of reverence.
