Society of African MissionsThe Society of African Missions was founded by Monsignor Marion of Brésillac in December 1856.
We are a family of missionary priests and seculars sharing our passion for Africa, the love of its people and respect for its traditions and cultures.
We are moved by our faith in Jesus Christ and the desire to proclaim his kingdom in every corner of the African continent. We seek justice, we work for peace, we build fraternity. In short, we commit ourselves to the realization of God’s project.
The Society of African missions was born to accompany the poorest of Africa on the path of life and faith in Christ. That is our charisma: the first evangelization. We are present in the most abandoned places to share, with simplicity and humility, what we are and what we have with our african brothers. Queremos que hombres y mujeres vivan con dignidad. Todos, sin excepción, somos hijos de Dios.
We believe in the testimony of the community and the value of internationality. We come from the five continents and we try to make that our differences enrich us. God calls us and Africa binds us.
