David Harold-Barry (ZIM), the superior of Silveira House, and Jean Luc Enyegue (AOC), the director of the Jesuit Historical Institute in Nairobi, spent two weeks with the Tertians impressively presenting the history of the Society. The two weeks were interrupted with a beautiful day on Table Mountain, which Mike and the young men climbed. The old man wisely took the cableway.
After the presentation on history, the Tertians departed for their month’s experiments. They are spread throughout South Africa. Ignatius Tambudzai is at the Night Shelter in Stellenbosch (run by civil society) all night and returns to the Tertianship at CBC Paradyskloof each morning. When Chikere Agbo goes to work at St Nicholas Parish, he has already been out to bless the vines for this years harvest.
In Cape Town, Cyprien Ranaivotratra, Mark Luedke, and Joestanis Okoye, have gone to help the Sisters of Nazareth with the children and old people. Nshimbi Kabamba is working with the Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office.
In Johannesburg, Matthew Pyrc is with the Institute at Auckland Park. Egide Ndiyisenga walks to and from the parish in Braamfontein every day, where he helps Norbert Munekani and David Rowan. Hubert Ralaivao is working with JRS, who are in the throes of moving from Murray House to Rosettenville, apart from looking after migrants.
All are due back at the Tertianship on 23 February to conclude the final three weeks of the programme.
The Tertianship concludes on the 15 March 2020.
The next Tertianship will commence on 20 September 2020 at Zinkwazi. Please see some of the photos from the new Tertianship below:
