In the Year 1973 through the instrumentality of Fr Christian Ihedoro, the Congregation came to Nigeria. It was by some stroke of providence that his travel documents back to Equatorial Guinea where he was serving, was not available. He decided to stay back in the country and recruit Missionaries there.
The success of that singular decision was unprecedented since it took only 34 years for another Major Organism to be created from the Province that crystallized from his effort. The West-Delegation of Nigeria was inaugurated on the feast of our Father Founder, 24th of October 2007 and in its three years of existence, it counts a total of 54 missionaries including Novices.
