We are the Missionary Sisters of Mary Mother of the Church, a religious Institute which was founded in 1970 by the Rt. Rev. Caesar Asili (RIP).
The Head quarters of the Institute are located in Lira, Northern Uganda, East Africa. The Institute has since its foundation grown and is now having 279 religious Sisters involved in Pastoral and Social activities, done through different ministries for the service of the people in different parts of the world. Currently, some sisters are working in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan and Italy.
The activities carried out by the sisters aim at improving the livelihood of the people hence the Missionary sisters of Mary Mother the Church focus on working with people in their communities.
Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ and witnessing to people that God is love, love attained by following Jesus Christ, after the manner of our Blessed Mother Mary.
We are a Religious Missionary Institute called to a life of prayer and to continue the redemptive work begun by Christ and the radiation of the image and likeness of Christ.
We radiate the Joy and compassionate Love of God to all people: the poor, the oppressed, the abandoned and the vulnerable in our Society. We promote the dignity of women, men, children and the less fortunate in society in Christ-like manner and we build communities of justice, peace and reconciliation wherever we serve. These are effected through our ministries.
Our foundation was a result of the desire which our founder had as a priest and Bishop to found a congregation of women who will carry on the missionary work of evangelization in Africa and in any other country where there is need.
The Superior General with the collaboration of her council is responsible for the General Administration of the Institute. The General Council is composed of four councillors one of whom is the General Vicaress.
