Farewells and New Beginnings

Summer 2012 brought with it a number of changes for Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Malta.  After two years spent with the team as part of the first-time project ‘African- European Jesuit Pastoral Presence among sub-Saharan African Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Migrants in Malta’, Fr Beatus Mauki SJ from Tanzania and scholastic Jaroslaw Mikuzcewski SJ from Poland, ended their term with JRS and have left to pursue their studies.  

During these two years both Jesuits played important roles in JRS’ work, ensuring above all the availability of constant pastoral support to a number of refugee and migrant communities.  Although they are very sorely missed the JRS staff would like to wish them both all the best as they undertake these new challenges and we look forward to meeting again in the near future. 

On a brighter note however, this sad news has been sweetened by the arrival of two new Jesuits to ensure continued pastoral accompaniment and support. Scholastic Krystian Mólka from Poland and Fr Max Senker SJ from the Democratic Republic of Congo, have both arrived in Malta and will very shortly begin their terms with JRS.  Krystian has in fact already received the traditional JRS baptism of fire, being thrown directly into his new position and has very quickly proved to be an asset to the team. 

The JRS staff would like to officially welcome both Krystian Mólka SJ and Fr Max Senker SJ to the team and we look forward to the new road ahead.
