The first Divine Word Missionaries came to Zimbabwe in 1986 when the Diocese of Bulawayo suffered a loss of missionaries due to killings and political violence. Bishop Henry Karlen CMM invited us to the Plumtree area as our first mission. It became very fruitful cooperation.
Nowadays we administer 3 city parishes and 3 rural missions of the diocese and our confrere Alex Kaliyanil was ordained as its archbishop. We work also in another two Zimbabwean dioceses and in various special apostolates.
