In October 2008, Richard O'Dwyer SJ went to work for JRS (Jesuit Refugee Service) Eastern Africa. He recently sent back his first impressions of Ethiopia, where he will work for the first two or three years of his assignment.
On 25 April, the Irish Missionary Resource Service approved the grant application of Jesuit Missions for €43,000 to finish building a primary school in a Jesuit parish in the Matero township in Lusaka, Zambia.
A Powerful experience of our Church in Mission
I worked with JRS (Jesuit Refugee Service) East Africa from July 2004 to July 2007. Three years. This time in Africa, though short, was a very defining experience.
