District of Africa

In the organization chart of the Society of St. Pius X, the District is the equivalent of a religious province, a territorial division often coinciding with the geographical limits of a country. In Africa, the district represents not a country, but an entire continent.

Each district is headed by a District Superior, appointed by the Superior General and his Council for a renewable six-year term. He is entrusted with the direction of the apostolate in his territory, in accordance with the statutes and the spirit of the Society. He is responsible for the pastoral, spiritual and temporal administration of the various apostolates: priories, schools, retirement homes, publications, associations of the faithful, etc. His main task is to care for the communities of priests working in the district.

Since 2022, Father Christophe Legrier is the District Superior. He is assisted by Father Anthony Esposito.
