A Christmas letter from Goma. Fr. Gerry Clarke SJ from Ireland works with JRS in Eastern Congo. Gerry is a past pupil of Gonzaga College and they will remember him in a special way at the Gonzaga Christmas Mass in 2008.
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.
