We are a Catholic Community of brothers witnessing to Jesus Christ and called by the Spirit to establish Dominican life in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Sudan! We preach the Gospel and form young men into religious life following the spirit of our founder St. Dominic! We are committed to a process of critical integration of values derived from the variety of cultures we represent, so as to respond to the needs of the Church and society in Eastern Africa.

St. Dominic, the founder of the "Order of Preachers" in the early part of the 13th Century gave his friars guiding principles which were called, "The Four Pillars." They are the basis of all that we, even now, do in our prayer, study, life and ministry. Simply put, they are just that: Prayer - Study - Community - Ministry.
Every Dominican from the foundation of the Order in 1216 to the present must have these Four Pillars as part of his or her life and they must be observed in the order stated. First, we must have a foundation of prayer in our life. If we don't establish a practice of prayer that is both personal and communal the other three "pillars" will collapse.
