Kimmage Mission Institute (KMI) was an educational institute of theology and cultures, founded 1991, by the Holy Ghost Fathers, at their Missionary College, in Kimmage Manor, Dublin. The Holy Ghost Fathers had a long history of teaching Theology and Philosophy in Kimmage to its missionaries. The KMI was developed as a response in the fall in vocations. As well as the Spiritans, ten other missionary congregations were involved in the institute (they were the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD), Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa (FMA), Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary (MSHR), Medical Missionaries of Mary (MMM), Missionary Sisters of St. Columban, Missionary Society of Saint Columban (SSC), Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of the Apostles (OLA), Redemptorist Congregation (CSsR), Society of African Missions (SMA) and Saint Patrick's Society for the Foreign Missions (SPS)). The KMI worked closely with its other Spiritan College on the Holy Ghost Missionary College campus, the Kimmage Development Studies Centre (DSC).
The KMI provided diplomas, a degree and postgraduate studies in Theology, Mission and Cultural studies. The KMI's degrees and diplomas were validated by HETAC (and its predecessor the NCEA).
In 1998 a Diploma in Mission Studies was delivered for the first time and in 1999 an MA was validated by the NCEA for delivery by the KMI.
