My name is Joseph Dadiri Aline from Democratic Republic of the Congo (D.R.C) in Africa. I am a third son of a family of seven children.

I became a permanent member of the Society of African Missions, Great Lakes District-in-Formation in May 2006 and I was ordained a priest on July 15, 2007.

I carried my first priestly missionary ministry in the Diocese of Rustenburg, South Africa for a period of five years (2007-2012) before being transferred to the Diocese of Ngon’g in Kenya.

I came to the United States on May 17, 2014. I have been serving at Saint Paschal Baylon in Thousand Oaks, California since the last week of February, 2016 as Associate Priest.

I look forward to uniting with you in St. Barnabas as “we continue the mission of the Church in the world through Prayer, Apostolic Works, Evangelization, and Christian Stewardship.”
