The Daughters of Mary Mother of Mercy (DMMM) is an institute of apostolic religious life of pontifical right founded in 1961 by the late Bishop Anthony Gogo Nwedo, CSSp in Nigeria.
Our aim is to work for the glory of God, the honor of the ever blessed Virgin Mary, the holiness of its members, and for the salvation of souls by the observance of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
The charism of the congregation is to bear witness to the mercy of God, by following in the footsteps of Christ, the merciful Savior and Mary our Mother of Mercy. Our motto is “evangelizare pauperibus mist me” (“He sent me to bring the good news to the poor”).
As sisters of mercy, we take Jesus to the poor people of God, especially the sick, the aged, the orphans, the underprivileged, and the spiritually impoverished. Our participation in education is simply to bring Jesus to the spiritually, morally and intellectually poor. In all this, we seek assistance from Our Lady of Mercy. Today, we have missions in various countries of Africa and Europe, as well as in the United States and Canada.
