A. Apostolate according to the religious situation
1- Apostolate of Encounter towards peoples
Islam has marked in culture and history.
This apostolate characterises our communities in the Maghreb
- Tunisia and Algeria,
- but also in other parts of Africa,
in particular Mali (Nyoro du Sahel, Gao),
in Burkina Faso (for example among the Fulani in Dori and Aribinda)
and in Niger among the Hausa (Zinder and Berni N'Konni),
and to a certain extent in Maniema in DR Congo (Mingana, Kipaka).
2- Apostolate of Encounter towards peoples
African Traditional Religion has marked in culture and history.
A good number of Missionary of Africa communities work among these
We mention as examples the communities of Northeast Uganda, among
the Teses (Soroti Diocese) and the Karamajong (Moroto Diocese), in
the north of Malawi in Nkata-Bay; in the west of Zambia among the
Lozi (Mongu Diocese) or again among the Senoufò in Mali (Fantarela).
Further examples include Burkina Faso (Konadougou) and Côte
d'Ivoire ( Korhogo), finally Ghana in Gara, Bumpurugu, in the northeast
of the country.
3- Apostolate towards Christian communities
is aiming to make them more Missionary.
In this they are helped to sink their Christian roots into their cultures
There are several communities in central Africa - DR Congo, Burundi,
and Rwanda; in Eastern Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Malawi, primarily,
even it is seldom to the exclusion of all else that they exercise
4- Apostolate for Christian Unity (Ecumenism)
is the characteristic of the communities in Ethiopia (Adigrat
and St. Anne's in Jerusalem. However an increasing number of
Missionaries of Africa have felt called to this apostolate in different
parts of Africa.
