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. 

January 18-25, 2017, is Christian Unity Week when Christians of all denominations pray that, one day, the prayer of Christ: “Father… that they may become completely one…” (John 17: 23) will be fully realised. 

The video we have chosen this week is Pope Francis’ January 2017 prayer intention for Christian unity in which he invites us to:
