MAGiS goes to Africa

July 7, 2009 in General, News

magis_01An Ignatian-inspired MAGiS Africa programme for young adults will be held in Nairobi, Kenya in August 2009.  Between 200 – 300 young people from Europe and Eastern Africa are expected to converge on Nairobi for the 3-week programme of action and reflection. Sr. Stephanie O’Brien, a Loreto Sister from Co. Cavan will co-ordinate the event, with a group of young adults from Kenya and Tanzania. The three-week programme will involve the Ignatian family, including a number of Jesuits from the Eastern Africa Province. Slí Eile (Jesuit Centre for Young Adults) and the Jesuit Mission Office collaborated to raise €1,875 to assist our colleagues there.
