20 years of Claretian presence in Zimbabwe

On January 29, 2002, three Claretian missionaries arrived in Zimbabwe: Amador Núñez cmf, Luis María Guerrero cmf and Antonio Llamas cmf, and with them began a history that last Saturday, January 29, 2022, celebrated its 20th anniversary.

At present, the community is formed by nine Claretian missionaries of different nationalities and a few months ago the first ordinations of missionaries from Zimbabwe (Brothers Nyasha Choga and Looklife Ndhlovu) were celebrated. They are divided into three communities: Ruwa, Zhomba and Harare, from which they serve two parishes in Ruwa (St Charles and St Dominic), two schools (St Claret in Zhomba Mission and St Vincent in Ruwa), and several development projects, such as ‘Education Changes Lives’ which is supported by Proclade Betica and Proclade Canarias.

Our congratulations! May the words of St. Anthony Mary Claret, “fall in love with Jesus Christ and your neighbour and you will do great things”, continue to be an inspiration for many more years of Claretian presence in Zimbabwe.
