Mary The Queen, Epkoma

The parish of Mary the Queen is located in the town of Ekpoma, Edo State, in the heartland of Nigeria. The Carmelites were given responsibility for this parish in 1995. Besides the parish Church, there are outstations.

In 2002 a parish centre opened. It was built with a generous contribution from the Irish Government. This houses many parish activities such as wedding receptions, study centre for students, a medical outreach centre and a day-care centre for children as well as the parish catechist office. On May 19, 2012, a gigantic multi-purpose structure was blessed and opened in the parish compound. Among others things, this large structure has a big bookshop, a beautiful chapel, various offices and a very large hall.

An offshoot of the work of the Carmelites in Ekpoma is the founding of the Mt. Carmel Group of Schools. Mt. Carmel Nursery and Primary school opened in 2001 while the Mt. Carmel Secondary School opened in 2003. An amazing success has been recorded since its foundation.
