Education in the city of Calabar

The training center is located on the compound of St. Patrick’s College. Here is a short history of the foundation in the 1930s:


In Nigeria there already existed Irish missions, orders for priests, and congregations for sisters – some dating back to the early 1900s. In the early 1920s, Irish priests of the Order of the Holy Spirit established their mission in the southern part of Nigeria. Later, St. Patrick’s Society for Foreign Missions, dedicated on March 17, 1932, became one of many Catholic groups in Nigeria providing education, both religious and secular.
