Prison Work and Holy Week
In this special edition of the LOVE & SERVE series, we share this edited message on Prison Work and Holy Week by Fr. David Harold Barry S.J. " When I was sent to Zambia three years ago, I was happy to take up the work and found the Zambian authorities most welcoming. I joined the Kabwata Parish team of priests, sisters and lay people who visit our five Lusaka prisons. We make sure that at least once a month every prison has Mass. I go every week to Remand (Kamwala) as I soon discovered I could not get a regular Sunday commitment in any parish. Kamwala is now my “parish”! Inmates give us a great welcome and appreciate anything we can do for them. We all learn that they are ordinary people like ourselves and the line between “a criminal” and a person walking free is very thin. We celebrate the Eucharist with them and hear their Confessions, study the Bible with them and listen to their concerns. READ MORE

Collaboration at Heart of Mission
The emphasis on collaboration is not a consequence of our not being able to do the work ourselves. It is that we do not wish to work by ourselves. The Society of Jesus makes no sense without the collaboration of others. In this regard we are called to a tremendous conversion, because in many places we are still nostalgic about the days when we could do everything, and we regret that now we have no choice but to share the mission. I profoundly believe that it is just the opposite: our life is in being able to collaborate with others. Fr. Arturo Sosa S.J. Superior General of the Society of Jesus
We invite you to Pray for the Members of the Society of Jesus and Collaborators who worked in Zambia-Malawi & died in the Month of March
