This is an important feast for our Society of Missionaries of Africa.

It is also the patronal feast of our Sister Congregation,

the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Africa (MSOLA)


The statue of Our Lady of Africa is in the Basilica in Algiers where we were founded.

On the wall of the apse there is the following inscription:

Our Lady of Africa, pray for us and for the Muslims


Would you like to prepare for this feast by reciting the following prayer?


Our Lady of Africa, Mary Virgin, Mother of

Jesus, chosen and blessed among all women

You are holy and spotless.

Your motherly heart is full of love and mercy.

Teach us to know God, to love, and serve him.

Help us to do good and to avoid evil,

To work for peace in truth, justice, freedom and love.

Help those who live in difficulty, suffer or are in danger.

Protect our country, sustain its workers.

Make our youth happy,

Unite our families.

Look with kindness on all the people of Africa.

Our Mother and protector,

Present our prayer to God Almighty.

(Here, we can express the grace we need).

May Africa sing your praises, O Mary,

And may this continent live in peace.
