Latin America and the Caribbean

Jesuit Missions has supported the Jesuit missionaries working in Guyana (formerly British Guiana) for many years. For much of its history Guyana identified more with the Caribbean but in recent years this perception is beginning to change as the country looks more and more to its South American roots. The nation which once defined itself by the sea now identifies itself with the land.

Our work in this region continues to be almost exclusively with Guyana but as the country begins to develop stronger relationships with its neighbours, in particular Brazil, it is likely this could change.
