General Chapter Meeting

The twentieth General Chapter of the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit will take place at Bagamoyo, Tanzania, from the 24th of June to the 22nd of July 2012. This will be the first time that such an event will be held in Africa. Bagamoyo is a former sea-port and slave market. The first Spiritan missionaries, from Alsace, arrived in 1868 and their first efforts were to liberate the slaves, Christianise them and educate them so that they could live with dignity.
