The Apostles of Jesus is a religious Missionary Order of Priests and Lay Brothers founded by two Italian (Verona) Comboni Missionaries. Fr. John Marengoni and Bishop Sisto Mazzoldi in Moroto Uganda on the 22nd of August 1968, for the explicit aim of the New Evangelisation of Africa and the World.
We commit ourselves to the service of the Spiritual, Pastoral and Social welfare of all people, with preference to the Poor in Spirit after the example of Christ ( Matthew 5:3 ) .Through evangelisation we build a new civilisation of love, justice, peace and life . We opt for primary evangelisation and for pastoral animation of all people because God wants all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
We invite you to Mission partnership with the Apostles of Jesus Missionaries since the mandate to proclaim the gospel of salvation is entrusted to all followers of Christ.
