Zambia: Workshop on HIV/Aids for Jesuit parish priests

The Social Apostolate Commission (SAC) of the Zambia-Malawi Province in conjunction with the African Jesuit AIDS Network (AJAN) held a two-day workshop in Lusaka from 21st to 23rd April 2008. The gathering, which brought together Jesuit pastors and some Jesuits in the AIDS ministry in the Province, was supported by the presence of the AJAN coordinator, Michael Czerny and his team. The overall purpose was to coordinate efforts against the pandemic within the province, and to give Jesuits actively and practically engaged in the AIDS ministry an opportunity to share their joys and sorrows, successes, anxieties, opportunities and challenges.
