Fr General's Visit to JHIA

Fr. Aturo JHIA_Visit

The Jesuit Historical Institute in Africa (JHIA) would like to thank the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr Arturo Sosa, SJ for paying us a visit on Thursday 4th May 2017. Fr. Sosa was in the company of Fr. Fratern Masawe, S.J, and Fr. Claudio Paul, S.J (both counselors to Father General), the JESAM President, Fr. Agbonkhianmeghe E. Orobator S.J, and others. During his visit, JHIA Director Fr. Festo Mkenda SJ took him through the various categories of collections that make up the library of the institute. The delegation was then led through a short video that explains the role JHIA should play as per Fr. Sosa’s predecessor, Fr Adolfo Nicolas SJ. The clip explains the idea in mind in establishing a historical institute not only for Jesuit related material but one that would preserve the history of Africa. He was impressed by the role the institute plays in the society. JHIA Staff will be pleased to host him again.
