Fr. Michael Murphy


In 1947, Rome entrusted to the English Province the Prefecture of Makurdi in Northern Nigeria. Ever since most of our Fathers, a total of 97, have worked there.

The mission continues until today. 

Fr. Michael Murphy has continued to further the British Spiritan presence and commitment to the mission in Nigeria. 

He is the Vicar-General of Makurdi Diocese, in Nigeria.
