The church in Nigeria is largely parochial. The parishes are key gateways of evangelization here in Nigeria. Consequently, we are very much involved in the pastoral life of the local church through the administrations of parishes entrusted to our care by Bishops of different diocese. This offers us a wonderful opportunity to translate our spiritual heritage as Schoenstatt to the local church. Through the parish ministry we animate and administer the parishes while also bringing many to the covenant relationship with Christ through Mary. At the moment we have some of our fathers working in Abeokuta Diocese, Benin Archdiocese, Ibadan Archdiocese, Lagos Archdiocese, and Warri diocese.
