City of the Immaculate

Marian Shrine, Apostolate Center, novitiate, postulancy

On a vast land given by the Bishop of Ijebu-Ode. Mons. Albert AyindeFasi, at the beginning of the third millennium, the Franciscans of the Immaculate propose to plant the first City of the Immaculate in Nigeria as a spiritual center for the whole nation.

The first community of friars settled on July 16, 2004.

On February 11, 2008, after two and a half years of work, the Sanctuary of “Mary Coredemptrix” was consecrated, and the House of Charity of St. Pio was blessed for the assistance of poor girls. 

The house is run by the FI Sisters,

Since 2010, it has been a novitiate house.
