A Glimpse of Dominican Life in Kenya

Fr. Martin Martiny, O.P., the vicar provincial of the Dominican vicariate of East Africa, came to our monastery for a visit recently. He gave us a fascinating power point presentation on the Dominican presence in Kisumu, Kenya, describing the young men in formation to become Dominican friars in Africa; Our Lady of Grace School, which the Dominicans fathers help to run, and their other varied ministries.

Father also talked about the work of the Hawthorne Dominican sisters in Kenya, whose compound is "next door" to the Dominican Fathers. We should not fail to mention that there are Dominican nuns in Kenya, near Nairobi!

Thank you for a wonderful fraternal visit, Father, and know that we are keeping you and all the Dominicans and all your ministries in our prayers!


  1. Sisters, kindly pray especially for Our Lady of Grace School,founded by Fr. Martiny, that it will take strong root and give glory to God among the children of Kisumu.
