The Daughters of Divine Love Congregation (DDL) is an international order of religious women founded by late Bishop Godfrey Mary Paul Okoye, C.C.Sp, on July 16th 1969 in Nigeria. It was founded during the agonizing and ravaging Nigeria-Biafra war. At the present time, more than 800 members have professed their vows. The Daughters are known in a special manner for their love of God and love of neighbour, coupled with deep humility, self- sacrifice and solid piety. Rooted and grounded in Love. This love is self-sacrificing love
The Daughters combine contemplation with apostolic action as seen in the life of Our Lord Himself. Interior life of prayer, therefore, is essential.
The Daughters respond to the needs of the Local Church according to the availability of personnel with the right qualification, ability, and aptitude. The Daughters carrying bravely the shield of Christian faith courageously undertake any apostolate for the glory of God and the salvation of souls, their own souls first and foremost (Founder’s Preface cf. DDL Const).
