Our History


Adoration Nuns monastery was founded on  1st of Dec. 1994 at Agbor in Issele-uku diocese of Nigeria by Rev. Fr Jude O. Mbukanma  O.P  with the permission of his Order, the province of St Joseph the worker Nigeria and Ghana. The monastery was later relocated to the diocese of Ilorin on 16th of May 1996 with the invitation of the Bishop, Dr Ayo Maria ATOYEBI O.P.

We are community of cloistered religious women dedicated to contemplative prayer through perpetual adoration of the Eucharistic Lord. We thus live a monastic way of life in the spirit of St Dominic de Guzman. We carry out active work within our monastery. Our main apostolate is our life of contemplation, Adoration and intercession. We encourage silence and penance for us to think about Jesus, listen to Him, study His word and pray ceaselessly to Him for the need of the church and the world.

Our secondary apostolate includes:  sewing, baking, making of candles, hand craft, running a retreat center and gift shop.
