WHO ARE THE DOMINICANS?:
The Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans), founded in France in 1216 by St. Dominic, is an International Catholic Religious Order with nearly forty (40) provinces from all parts of the world, all united by obedience to the Master of the Order www.curia.op.org. The enclosed nuns, apostolic sisters and members of Dominican lay fraternities, priestly fraternities and secular institutes, also share in the charism of the Order.
PROVINCE OF NIGERIA AND GHANA:
The Dominicans came to Nigeria in 1951 through the missionary enterprise of St. Albert the Great Province, Chicago, Illinois, USA. The Province of St. Joseph the Worker www.dominicans.ng.org (Nigeria and Ghana) was created in 1993 and is the only Province of the Order on the African continent. Blessed with an abundance of vocations, the Province has over 147 friars. The Order was “Known from the beginning to have been instituted especially for preaching and the salvation of souls” and is “appointed entirely for the complete evangelisation of the word of God”. We strive to live out our Dominican and Thomistic spirituality as we face the many challenges of modern-day West Africa. We have a tax exempt status in Nigeria with incorporation registration. No. 4225 of 9th March, 1965 as a non-profit charitable and international religious organization.
