Jesuit Province of Zimbabwe-Mozambique: Jubilee celebrations 2017

unnamed 2

On Wednesday August 23, 2017 at 1700hrs, Jesuits, brothers and collaborators gathered in Arrupe College, Harare for a thanks giving mass to celebrate ten Jesuits marking their Jubilee; 25 to 75 years of service to the Society of Jesus in Zimbabwe-Mozambique Province.

The 10 have immensely contributed to communities all over Zimbabwe and Mozambique serving in various capacities.

Bishop Emeritus for Chinhoyi Diocese, Dieter Scholz SJ celebrated the mass. In his homily, he said, "dear jubilarians, you were invited by Jesus to follow him, you heard the call, you accepted the invitation and you have faithfully walked with Jesus on his difficult journey up to Jerusalem for the past 25, 50, 60 70 75 years. Year after year you renewed you commitment to service of Christ. I thank you for your general perseverance on behalf of the church and the Society of Jesus. In the presence of God and the church, I ask you to remain celibate for the sake of the kingdom and in lifelong service to God. We do carry the treasure of our vocation in vessels, which are fragile. Our vocation can be broken if we do not live our solemn promises, if we do not pray, if we do not make our annual retreats and if we do not receive the sacrament of reconciliation before we give it to others."

Those celebrating were:


• 25 years in the Priesthood
Fr. Heribert Mueller, 5 December, 1992

• 70 years in the Society
Fr. Anthony Watsham, 7 September, 1947

• 60 years in the Society
Br. Jose Araujo de Andrade, 16 May, 1957
Fr. Robert Althan, 7 Septembre, 1957

• 25 years in the Society
Fr. Tomas Armando, 18 March, 1992
Fr. Joseph Arimoso, 1 July, 1992
Fr. Chiedza Chimhanda, 1 July, 1992
Fr. Emmanuel Gurumombe, 1 July, 1992
Fr. Stephen Silungwe, 1 July, 1992

 

A big congratulations to all the jubilarians and wishing you all many blessings as you continue with your journey in service of Christ and the Church.
