The monastery of Umuoji was founded by the Abbey of St John the Baptist (Rome) in 1978. In 2014 the community comprised 120 sisters, including 14 novices and 17 in temporary vows.
The sisters make altar-breads, have a fish-farm and poultry-farm and plantations.
The formation is basic in a young and numerous community. Two sisters, having received their diploma in theology, are starting their studies of philosophy at the Institut Catholique of West Africa at Port Harcourt.
