A new mission in Brazil

Father Vitalis Inyang is welcomed into his new mission in Maraã, Tefé, Brazil!


In 2023 St Patrick’s Missionary Society officially announced the decision to open a new mission in the Amazon. The new mission would be in the Prelature of Tefé in the north of Brazil. It covers a massive area of 264,675 km² - roughly the size of Italy! With a population of about sixty thousand people, Tefé is the largest town and commercial centre of the middle Solimões region.


Five Society members were appointed to pioneer this mission: Fathers Vitalis Inyang, Seán Deegan and three newly ordained priests, Emmanuel Zikabuma, Henry Abinya Ejeh and Limo Soter Kipkosgei.


We wish Vitalis and the rest of the team all the best in their new mission!
