Welcome Message from the JESAM President


Fr. Mike 2The Jesuit Superiors of Africa and Madagascar (JESAM) welcome you to our new website. This is part of an ongoing initiative to build an online presence for the Society of Jesus in Africa using the best technologies. Across our Order, new technology is being used to share the Word of God, better explain our work and help support a growing understanding of key issues of our day. Jesuits in Africa have a tradition of serving on the frontiers so it is only fitting that we take this position online.

Our Mission


The Mission of JESAM is to “build up the Society of Jesus in Africa and Madagascar into a prayerful and discerning community of apostolic men, and to foster union, communication, effective leadership and planning towards a common vision and the universal mission of the Society.”


The Jesuits in Africa


Jesuits have become part of the fabric of African society for the last 450 years. In the last 50 years the order in Africa has transformed from a ministry of foreign missionaries to a truly African body representing the aspirations of an organisation that is bound to supporting a "faith that does justice".
