The Nature of the Congregation
Motto: “Do whatever He ask you to do.” (John 2:5)
The Congregation of Mother of Christ Fathers (CMCF), founded on September 8, 2014 by Reverend Father Johnpaul Ejike Akpa is an Institute of apostolic religious life whose members take the three public vows of obedience, poverty, and chastity.
The Spirit of the Congregation 
The Spirit of our Congregation is that of charity, humility, prayer, penance, and abandonment to the will of God. It is a dynamic growth of the Spirit of Christ as expressed in the gospel. We strive to imitate Christ in order to be his faithful interpreters by our very lives.
Charism of the Congregation 
We live a life of unseasoned prayer. We are victims of Christ love and therefore live in perpetual adoration to the Lord. Furthermore, the Brothers are involved in the education of the youths, moral upbringing of the youths and offer psycho- therapeutic counseling to the people of God. We believer in the word of our founder that says “Catch them young and let their light shine” similarly, the CMCF father’s care for the elderly one, poor, youth, and the needy. We have it as our charisma is to bear witness to the Mercy following the footsteps of Christ, the merciful Saviour and our Mother Mary, who didst choose a better part expressed in compassion, forgiveness, and kindness.

Teaching Apostolate

The proper education of the people of God which is aimed at a full  development of the human person and faculties, the discoveries of gifts and talents, and its development according to the mind of the Creator, must take a prime place in our apostolate, at home and abroad. This should have as its primary purpose, the preparation of responsible and capable Christians for building up of Christian community and a healthy human society.
