Descrição Jesuits in South Africa work as university and school chaplains, priests, lecturers in philosophy and theology, spiritual and retreat directors, teachers in seminaries and with refugees and those most marginalised in our Society.

Members of the Society of Jesus have been serving the Catholic Church in South Africa continuously since 1875 when they were invited to Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape. At present, we have communities in Johannesburg and Cape Town but often give talks, conferences and retreats in other provinces.

For one hundred years we have worked in various parts of South Africa in education, missions and parishes, and trained others who were on their way to jobs north of the Limpopo River. Fr. Guy Tachard SJ, was the first Jesuit to set foot in South Africa when he landed at Cape Town in 1685. He was a Frenchman on his way to Siam as an astronomer-teacher. Although the Dutch authorities did not allow Catholics to disembark, because the governor of the Cape Colony wanted astronomical readings taken, he was allowed ashore.
