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.

Announcing the Good News of Jesus Christ takes many forms: direct preaching to people on the street, in church and other places where people gather. But with the dawn of the digital age the SMA has harnessed modern media methods to address religious and social issues from a Catholic perspective. Fr Tom Casey, from Emly, Co Tipperary, has spent many years in the ‘media world’ of Radio and TV, producing many programmes on social and other issues affecting African people, particularly in Zambia.

This 4 minute video is part 1 of the story of Chipulukusu Community School, founded by the SMA.
