A Brief Introduction to the Jesuits
The Jesuits are a religious order within he Catholic Church in Zimbabwe. Currently there are about 120 Jesuits living and working here in Zimbabwe in a variety of different apostolates. Perhaps what we are most well-known for are the schools that we own and run like St. Georges College, St. Ignatius and St. Peter’s Kubatana, as well as the mission schools we run on behalf of the diocese at Makumbi, Musami and Makonde, in all 18 schools in the Harare and Chinhoyi dioceses.
Jesuits are involved in running 4 parishes in Harare: Mount Pleasant, Braeside, St. Peter’s Mbare, Mabelreign-Marlborough-Dzivarasekwa, as well as Chishawasha just outside Harare. We are also responsible for a further five rural parishes: Banket, Makonde and Murombedzi, Makumbi and Musami.
Social development that focuses on building a more just, equitable and participative society is another central work of the Jesuits in this country. This apostolate is run mainly from our social centre at Silveira House, but has other dimensions, such as the Jesuit Aids Project, Zambuko House rehabilitation and skills training home for street kids, and the Pedro Arrupe home and education centre for hearing impaired children, as well as the Jesuit Relief Fund that distributes food to those most in need around the country.
A few Jesuits are also involved in the media, running publications, producing documentaries and radio programmes.
Woven into all of this diverse tapestry of activities is the spirituality apostolate, where we as Jesuits seek to communicate to others the gifts, the freedom, and the joy of our Ignatian spiritual heritage. We do this most directly through the giving of retreats and the formation of 'Christian Life Communities'. But this Ignatian spirituality invariably shines out also through all of our other various works.
