The Missionaries of Africa
Vocations Web Site
This is the first page of a new Missionaries of Africa web site. It will probably take some time for the site to develop and it will do so as more information is avaiable and put on-line. Please be patient with us and keep checking on what we are doing. Thank you!
The Missionaries of Africa, also know as the White Fathers, is a Roman Catholic missionary society present in many countries throughout Africa.
This web site is deliberately made up of small pages so that it will be easy to load when accessed by telephone line.
The purpose of this web site is help us to get to know you and to tell you something about our Society, ourselves, and the work we do. The site covers eastern and southern Africa and includes the following countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
If you have any questions, would like to learn more about us, or want to contact a Missionary of Africa in your country, please click one of the links on the left.
Photograph Quick Links
The follwing are photos that have been sent to us recently. Despite the fact that this site is still developing here are some quick links to the photos.
Photographs from Kenya
These are photographs from the continuing troubles in Kenya showing people who had taken fled and taken shelter at the Show Ground in Nairobi. These are in three different types of presentation and can be seen by clicking the links below:
Gallery One - is a framed gallery that might take sometime to load on a dial up connection.
Gallery Two - is a gallery that automaticaly runs as a slide show, but can be scrolled through. No doubt this will take quite sometime to load on a dial up connection.
Gallery Three - is the simplest gallery that can be scrolled through and should take the least time to load on a dial up connection.
Photographs from Mozambique
These photographs were sent by Fr Timotee Bationo who is the Vocations Director for Mozambique. The Gallery is a simple format and should not take too long to load.
Photographs from South Africa
The photographs in this gallery were sent by Frs. Didier Michon and Jan De Groef who work in Siyabuswa Parish. The Gallery is a simple format and should not take too long to load.
Most of these photographs were taken at a vocations meeting in Pretoria, South Africa, in December 2007. They show the Vocations Directors and others who attended the meeting. It was there that it was decided to establish this web site. The Gallery is in a simple format and should load quite fast.
I am interested in your reactions to the photographs and to the three gallery formats used for the Kenyan pictures. If you have any comments please send them to me.
Thanks, Bill Turnbull MAfr.
