La Pieuse Association des Apôtres de Jésus ou les Apôtres de Jésus (a.j.) est un ordre missionnaire catholique, le premier créé en Afrique, en 1968. La Congrégation a été fondée à Moroto, en Ouganda, par un missionnaire combonien, Giovanni Marengoni et fut approuvé par l’évêque Sisto Mazzoldi.

Les Apôtres de Jésus sont répartis en plus de soixante communautés dans trente diocèses africains, en Ouganda, au Kenya, en Tanzanie, au Soudan, en Afrique du Sud, à Djibouti et en Éthiopie. La Congrégation oeuvre également en Europe et aux États-Unis, où elle est présente dans vingt diocèses dans quinze états.

En 2008, la Congrégation comprend 370 « Apôtres » qui officient comme curés, vicaires, aumôniers dans les hôpitaux et les écoles. L'évêque de Soroti, en Ouganda, Emmanuel Obbo, nommé en juin 2007[1], est le premier prélat issu des rangs des Apôtres[2].
