Fr Jacob has served as an SJAA Trustee for many years. Being Congolese, and a former Provincial Superior in Africa, he has brought to the Trustees a wealth of knowledge and on the ground insights which have been invaluable in guiding the Trustees in their decisions concerning projects. He has been a faithful attendee at meetings, often doing a round trip from Belgium in a day.
Six years ago he was elected Superior General of the Josephites and since then he has found it more and more difficult to serve as a Trustee. We remain secure in the knowledge that, although he is no longer a Trustee, we can contact Fr Jacob if we need advice or information concerning the areas where SJAA operates.
We thank him for his service and wish him well for the future.
