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 Earth Week 2017 the SMA Communications Office has sourced a truly inspiring and uplifting video of breath-taking images of God’s creation, set to a stunning song and soundtrack “Creation Calls” by Brian Doerksen.
