The Vicariate of East Africa

About the Vicariate of East Africa

The Vicariate of East Africa is a mission of the Province of St. Joseph (USA) which is part of the Order of Preachers, a worldwide order of friars dedicated to preaching Jesus Christ.
The Vicariate of Eastern Africa terriorial boundaries include Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Sudan. We also have Friars from other Provinces and Vicariates including Rwanda, Burundi, Sudan, Angola and South Africa pursuing different studies here. 
The friars of the vicariate serve in a variety of ministries throughout this region, undertake missionary work in Eastern Africa, and serve when called throughout the world.
How do we serve?

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our mission is exercised for the salvation of souls and extends to all of God’s people through these primary ministries: preaching, teaching, and serving. See how we live this mission.

Called to be a Dominican?

In every age of challenge, the Lord has never abandoned His Church. St. Dominic’s mission, to preach the Gospel for the salvation of souls, is just as urgent today as it was 800 years ago. Is the Lord calling you to join this mission?

How can you help?

Dominicans are called to contemplate, and share the fruits of their contemplation with others. Your financial assistance helps us to prepare a new generation of preachers and sustain the friars who have spent their lives in service to church.
