Pères Blancs


The missionary society known as the 'White Fathers' (les Pères Blancs in French), after their dress, is a Roman Catholic brotherhood founded in 1868 by the first Archbishop of Algiers, later Cardinal Lavigerie, as the Missionaries of Our Lady of Africa. Today it is also known as the Society of the Missionaries of Africa.

Photographed by Walery of Marseilles.
