2017 Diary: Africa in Recent GCs

JHIADiary-2017The 2017 JHIA Diary is here! This product is now available for circulation. We trust that our patrons can order their copies early enough to allow shipping before Christmas.

The 2017 diary builds on the reviews we received on the 2015 and 2016 diaries. On the basis of those reviews, we largely maintained the same structure and format even as we introduced significantly new content. We appreciate the fact that the JHIA diary is increasingly being used by a good number of Jesuits and their friends. 

The 2017 diary continues to provide crucial historical information. It bears a basic report on the Jesuit Historical Institute in Africa in its current state and introduces the institute’s short term (2017-2021) and long term (2017-2026) plans. In the context of the recently concluded 36th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus, the JHIA 2017 diary also includes highlights on Africa in more recent General Congregations. Moreover, a snapshot of the current state of African continent is provided as a background against which the 36th General Congregation took place. This, we hope, will also be the backround against which many in Africa will read whatever prounouncements the Congregation will produce and the context in which its decisions will be implemented within Africa and Madagascar. At the very end of the diary is a chronological reference chart of major Jesuit events in Africa from 1900 to the present. This was designed to complete the 2016 chart, which showcased similar events from the bginning of the Society of Jesus to the year 1900.

With so much historical detail, the JHIA diary is surely a collector’s item. We are deeply satisfied that we have been able to offer the 2017 product to our friends and supporters at exactly the same price as that of last year (KSH 800.00; TSH 15,000.00; USD 10.00; EURO 9.00). The diary can now be ordered from the JHIA ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots.

We recommend that, where possible, customers take advantage of friends and companions passing through Nairobi to purchase a copy for them; alternatively, add shipping cost to the indicated price. Ordered early, the diary should arrive anywhere in the world in time for Christmas…and what a wonderful Christmas gift it would make! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE JHIA BY PURCHASING THE 2017 DIARY!
