Welcome to the AMRI Website.
The Association of Leaders of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI) represents and promotes active collaboration between Religious Institutes, Societies of Apostolic Life and Lay Missionary Organisations. It seeks to respond to existing and emerging realities both in Ireland and overseas by supporting and energising the life and ministries of its members and of the wider church with a renewed sense of hope and relevance.
People's Vaccine Alliance, Ireland
The Peoples Vaccine Alliance Ireland, of which AMRI are a member, is campaigning to upscale production of COVID-19 vaccines so they are available to everyone, everywhere. Ireland’s vaccine roll out is gathering speed. Soon every adult in Ireland will have access to a COVID-19 vaccine. But the global pandemic is far from over and less than 3% of people in lower income countries have access to a vaccine.
This inequity is a result of decisions taken by governments and must be challenged. We are asking the Irish government to take a stand for fairness, equality and global health by calling for a #PeoplesVaccine. Please join us.

Submission from AMRI on new Lectionary translation
AMRI welcomes that the Irish Episcopal Conference is consulting widely on the translation of the new lectionary. The Lectionary for Mass is the liturgical volume from which God’s Word is proclaimed during the celebration of the Eucharist; so it is of central importance in the life of the Church. We welcome the opportunity to make this submission.
The Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) and Society of African Missions (SMA), in collaboration with Elders for Earth, SHEP Earth Aware, and Green Spaces for Health, are running a two-week biodiversity awareness campaign from 17 to 29 May 2021.
