Come and See
Do you feel Called to dedicate your entire life for the service of God and his people? Are you a good and healthy practicing Catholic? Do you meet university requirements for Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Sudan? Have you finished university? or are you a professional? Do you feel God calling you to preach the Gospel ?
We are the Dominican friars. A part of a larger group known as the Dominican Family sharing a common heritage with the spirit and charism of St. Dominic. In Eastern Africa (ie. Sudan, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya) currently we are in Nairobi and in Kisumu archdioceses in Kenya.
Others in the Dominican family are the Dominican Nuns who are in Nairobi archdiocese. These are cloistered religious women who live contemplative prayer life in their monastery, they have dedicated their entire life to pray to God for the entire world.
Also in the Dominican family are active Dominican sisters. In Eastern Africa there are sisters from Zambia and Zimbabwe who work in Thika as teachers and health workers. In Ngong Diocese we have Dominican sisters from Philipines running schools. In Kakumiro western Uganda and Namugongo near Kampala, we have Dominican sisters teaching in schools.
Apart from Dominican friars and sisters, we also have another group known as Dominican laity. Dominican laity are in Nairobi and in Kisumu. This is a group of professionals who are interested in preaching the gospel but as married and single persons.
Our number is still small in Eastern Africa, however the urgent demand for the Dominican charism of preaching in all its forms is urgently needed for the growth and the deepening of the faith in each of these countries. If you are interested to preach the Gospel in the Spirit of St. Dominic, ask St. Dominic to assist you in your discernment of God's will in your life.
