Getting ready to welcome Fr. General in West Africa

For the first time since his election, Fr. Arturo Sosa will visit two countries in the vast Jesuit Province of West Africa. He will spend the Triduum of the Holy Week participating in the liturgical celebrations in two parishes of the Society of Jesus. First in N'Djamena, Chad, on Holy Thursday, then in the Douala area in Cameroon, for the remainder.

The Communications Department of the West Africa Province has prepared a short video presentation and introduction to the visit. In an article published on the website of the Jesuit Conference of  Africa and Madagascar, journalist Honoré Onana Olah SJ underlines the interest of Father General's visit shortly after the promulgation of the Society's four universal apostolic preferences for the next ten years. He mentions in this regard that the Provincial of West Africa, Fr. Hyacinthe Loua, has recently offered his companions some ideas for reflection to better appropriate these preferences.

To keep you informed on Superior General's visit to both West and Central Africa, you can visit the website of the Jesuit Conference of  Africa and Madagascar:; after the visit, the curia's websites will offer further echoes and reflections on this African journey of Father Arturo Sosa.
