Welcome to SMA
The SMA (Societas Missionum ad Afros) is an international Society of Catholic (Priest and Lay) Missionaries who come from around the world and are dedicated to the spread of the Gospel in Africa and among African people. The SMA missionaries have been present in Africa since 1856.
The American Province began in 1906 and has a mission presence in the Archdioceses of Newark (NJ), Washington (DC) and Boston (MA).
SMA Fathers Provincial Assembly elected New Leadership
The delegates have chosen today the new leadership for the American Province.
It is the new Leadership team that will ensure the unity of the members and the missionary activity of province here in the USA and abroad for the next six years. The composition of this team reflects the international nature of the SMA which brings together members, young and old. We are all united by our common response to the call of the Spirit, making the proclamation of the Good News to the poor, our ideal of life.
They are: Fr. Anbu Kumar, provincial superior; Fr. Dermot Roache, vice-provincial; and Fr. Richard Angolio, councilor.
