Welcome to www.thewhitefathers.org.uk
This is the United Kingdom Web Site of the
Society of Missionaries of Africa.
We are popularly known as "the White Fathers" because traditionally we wore distinctive white robes, as seen below in a 1929 photograph of Navrongo Church in Northern Ghana. The white robes reflected our origins in Algiers where Cardinal Lavigerie founded the Society in 1868.
