Who we are

One thing I ask of the Lord. This I long to dwell in the house of the Lord,
all the days of my life.

Who we are

Founded at the wake of the Nigerian civil war to be a sign of love, unity, and forgiveness in a broken and divided world, our Founder's intention is that we show through our lives in a community that it is possible for people to come from different tribes and be able to live harmoniously together.

As consecrated African women, we strive to integrate into our life all that is good, true, and beautiful in our culture. We value our deep relationship with God through community and individual prayer inspired by our devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through our life in the community, we support each other in our various ministries and celebrate our giftedness. We believe in respect for others and ourselves and therefore strive to treat all people with dignity and respect regardless of religion, class, tribe, or culture, making our communities/houses places of hospitality where all can feel accepted.

OUR CHARISM calls us to experience and makes all people aware of the redemptive love of Christ that binds us together as members of the one family of God and enhances the realization of Jesus' prayer. That they may be one. THE MOTTO of our Congregation is "UT UNUM SINT". (Jn. 17:21). Marked by our sacrificial love and Christian humility and inspired by our devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we respond to the needs of the Church as they come up and wherever they occur. We participate actively, especially in our local situations, working to eliminate the root causes of poverty, to empower our womenfolk, and work for the realization of peace, justice, love, and the unity of all God's creation.
