The Conference of Jesuit Major Superiors of Africa and
fr-michael-lewis-sj. Madgascar (JESAM) meets at the Curia in Rome

The Conference of Jesuit Major Superiors of Africa and Madagascar (JESAM) met at the Curia in Rome from the 29th of April to
the 2nd of May 2014. The president, Michael Lewis, all the Provincials and Regional Superiors have attended, including three CEP (Conference of European Provincials) members of the Commissio Mixta from Europe plus John Dardis, their president, who has come a day in advance, for a one day joint enterprise.

 

This meeting of the Commissio-Mixta, the inter-conference collaboration (CEP-JESAM) structure, dealt first with issues of common concern such as refugees and migrants and other inter-continental issues of common interest such as the Jesuit Historical Institute of Africa (JHIA). Apart from dealing with biannual reports on common works, the main purpose of the JESAM plenary session has been to study the future of our formation centres in Africa with respect to the changing national policies on Higher Education in some countries. The meeting concluded the agenda with a number of issues including solidarity in formation, restructuring of Provinces and Regions, the JHIA. This meeting provided an opportunity to meet with curial officials and also an occasion to visit with those who are studying in Rome from the African Assistancy.
