Our Apostolate

The Religious Institute of the Sisters of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is an Institute of Pontifical Right. In 1940 providence brought to the cost of West Africa, Cardinal Riberi as Papal Delegate to the British East and West Africa Colonies. In that capacity, he visited Lagos and was quick to notice the absence of African girls in the rank and file of the religious women and stressed the tremendous need for African Sisters in Nigeria.

Archbishop Leo Hale Taylor, SMA, the then Archbishop of Lagos took up the challenge to found a Religious Institute of ‘African Sisters.’ He founded the Institute of the Sisters of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus on January 18, 1943.
