AFRICA: Jesuits to the Frontiers

Eastern Africa Province (AOR) Development Office has published a reflection booklet: Jesuits to the Frontiers: Reflection on Vocation and Mission. The booklet features several Jesuits, representing a variety of age groups, who share stories of their ministries and spiritual journey in the Society of Jesus. Each story reveals the striking uniqueness and richness of Jesuit life. At the same time, the stories give testimony to God's generosity towards us in various apostolates, even as we look creatively to a future bristling with hope and promise. We hope to use this booklet in promoting vocation, edifying the companions of the Province and sharing our mission with partners. Copies of the book can be ordered via development.aor@gmail.com or More
