Our history

St Patrick’s Missionary Society was founded on St Patrick’s Day 1932 and for more than eighty years has continued the work of spreading the Gospel, following the words of Jesus: Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look I am with you always; yes, to the end of time. (Matt 28:19-20)

Fr Pat Whitney, Founder

Bishop Joseph Shanahan

St Patrick’s Missionary Society had its origins in the 1920s when a few diocesan priests in Ireland who volunteered to join the Irish Spiritan Bishop, Joseph Shanahan, in his missionary work in Southern Nigeria. You can read here how the Society came into being and grew over the years, spreading first beyond Nigeria, and later beyond Africa. And you can get a glimpse of the future.
