Alumni: Our Treasured Pearls

The Dominican Institute Ibadan Alumni Association (DIIAA) is a non-governmental association comprising of former students of the Dominican Institute Ibadan. Established in 1994, the Dominican Institute Ibadan graduated its first set of students in 1998 in the Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy programme run in affiliation with Nigeria’s premier university, namely the University of Ibadan.

Since graduating its pioneer students, over six hundred students have graduated from degree programmes including Bachelor of Sacred Theology and Master of Arts in Theology run by the Institute in affiliation with the Pontifical University of St. Thomas, Rome and Duquesne University, Pittsburgh respectively.

From other non-degree programmes, the Institute has equally enriched the lives of over a hundred students who have completed such non-degree programmes such as Diploma in Religious Formation, Diploma in Christian Theology and Spirituality and Certificate in Christian Theology.

Today, members of the DIIAA are dispersed globally and making transformative impacts in different parts of the world as lecturers in institutions of higher learning, pastors of souls in different Catholic dioceses around the world, educational administrators, and professionals in different fields of endeavour.

We Connect to Grow Together

The Institute desires to bequeath two things to her students: the first is roots to remain solidly ingrained with strong intellectual and moral fibre and the second is wings to soar higher and progressively attain realms of excellence in every endeavour.

DIIAA is thus an organization that brings together all former students of the Institute under an umbrella of friendship, solidarity, mutual support, and pursuit of the vision and mission of the Institute.

Accordingly, DIIAA has the following objectives:

  1. advancement of professional growth and competence of members
  2. promotion of friendship among former students across ethnic boundaries and religious affiliation
  3. provision of mutual support and solicitude for members

A Three-Day Workshop for Candidates for Diaconate and Priestly Ordinations

Date: 2019-02-19 - 2019-02-22

Priestly Life and Ministry (PLM) workshop is a programme that draws its inspiration from the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Saint John Paul II, Pastores Dabo Vobis, a document that speaks to the question of the formation of priests in our contemporary context. Observing the interconnectedness of the four areas of priestly formation, namely human formation (the basis of all priestly formation), spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral formations, John Paul II exhorts agents of priestly formation and the candidates for priestly ministry especially to offer “heartfelt cooperation to this work of formation” (no. 69).
