JCTR Press Release 21th January 2014

JCTR Lusaka2013 Showed a Mixed Picture in Economic Performance
The year 2013 had its ups and downs in terms of the cost of living as measured by the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection’s (JCTR’s) Basic Needs Basket.  A continued concern for the JCTR in 2013 is the persistently high cost of living. In 2013, the high cost of living stemmed mainly from high food prices. As a faith based organisation, to see the poor access their basic needs and rights, such as the right to food, is cardinal to improving living conditions and hence reducing poverty in Zambia.

Word of Gratitude form Lebombo Parish, South Africa

Lebombo Parish logoOn behalf of the Parish Pastoral Council and Fr. Crispin Vungwa, I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for the great support shown to us on the occasion of the untimely demise of Father Sebastien Ndrutsomi.   
Thank  you  for  the  gift  of  your  love,  sacrifice,  time  and  your  commitment  to  show solidarity and comfort to us.  Happiness is not found at the end of the journey but it is found as we plough along day after day with what God puts on our path.  The Parish was very united during these trying times and it is with renewed vigour that we will continue with the building of the Kingdom of God in our Lebombo community.  
May  our  Lord  Jesus  Christ  and  His  Blessed  Mother  hold  you  their  loving  embrace and bless you abundantly.  

Jean-Pierre Le Scour


You remain in our thoughts and prayers.
Fr. JPM Le Scour, M.Afr
