The Divine Mercy Sister's Mother house and orphanage continues toward completion. With foundation, walls, roof and windows completed the Sisters look forward to the day when the children and sisters have beds to sleep in and tables and chairs for dining. Your charity will help that day come sooner.
The Missionary Sisters of Divine Mercy were founded in 2003 by the Reverend Mother Caroline Amaka
Osegbo. After being a Eucharistic Sister of St. Joseph for over 13 years Mother Amaka was inspired by
God to begin a new order of sisters with a new focus devoted to living Jesus’s Divine Mercy to the world
offering unconditional love to every person without discrimination. To learn more about the devotion of
Divine Mercy as revealed by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska read the Diary of Sister Faustina. The Missionary Sisters of Divine Mercy were founded under the express permission granted by the first Catholic bishop of the Nnewi Diocese, the Most Reverend Hillary Paul Odili Okeke.
Because of the benevolence of a local landowner, the Missionary Sisters were given the land to build a Mother house with connecting school and orphanage in Nigeria’s Nnewi diocese. After 11 years the sister’s project is still under construction and they continue to make progress through the generosity of charitable donors. There are many needs to meet before the building will be fully functional. The roof, walls and windows have been recently completed, while flooring, plumbing and beds are still lacking.
The Missionary Sisters rely on providence to fill all their needs from food, shelter, and rent to medical
care and the higher education required for sisters to teach and care for the sick. While their mother
house is still under construction after 10 years, most of the sisters sleep on the floor and share what
little resources they have with the poor in their communities. Unbelievably, in 10 short years the order
has grown to 120 sisters and growing .
Presently the sisters have houses in Italy, Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Nigeria, and soon
they will be present in Benin.
