Yes, there are.  What you are looking for is petsc4py.  PETSc is a very
good, well-developed package for scalable scientific computing.  It is based
on MPI and is very well-known and well-supported package (it is really
amazing actually how good their support actually is!)

Anyways, Lisandro Dalcin, a friend of mine, wrote petsc4py bindings that
allow you to do anything you want in PETSc in python.  The bindings are very
good, but not well documented.  It doesn't really matter however, because he
is so accessible, and PETSc's documentation is so good that you can browse
through it and guess what the correcponding syntax is in petsc4py.

I highly recommend that you check it out.  Let me know how it goes or if you
have any problems.
