DAUGHTERS OF ST PAUL IN NIGERIA (1964/1994)

Daughters of St Paul Lagos (1964/1994)

At the invitation of Msgr Sergio Pignedoli, then Apostolic Delegate in Nigeria, the Daughters of St Paul arrived in Lagos on 15th October 1964. At that time the bishop of Lagos joyfully welcomed them. All the bishops were happy with the Sisters’ presence and would have loved to have them in their dioceses. The apostolate in Nigeria was so dynamic that in two years of their arrival, the Daughters of St Paul would say, “All make use of our bookshop as manna from Heaven: from the North to the South of Nigeria, from the highest ecclesiastical authority to the furthest missionary. Here, they have understood well the spirit of our Congregation, and its face shines so brightly that it covers our limits and weaknesses.” A small group of Pauline Cooperators help in diffusing the books in Lagos and other centres. Due to political reasons, the Sisters had to leave Nigeria, but happily they returned a second time in 1994.
