Eleven new Marist Brothers in Africa



First Religious Profession in Kumasi

08/07/2015: Ghana

On the 13th of June 2015, eleven young men from the Province of Nigeria and the District of West Africa made their first vows at the local parish situated not far away from the novitiate of Kumasi, in Ghana. In attendance were Priests, Religious and the lay faithful who turned out in their numbers to support the newly professed Brothers.

The Bishop of Obuasi diocese where the novitiate is located celebrated the mass. In his homily Rev Peter challenged the novices to live out their calling to the full. He reminded them that God who had called them had given them all that they needed so as to be good Religious.  He urged them to discover their talents and to put them at the disposal of the congregation and the church as a whole. Finally he reminded them of the need to always turn to God, live good lives and touch others positively because the Lord says in the Bible so well that every branch that bears no fruit is cut away but that which bears fruit is pruned so as to make it bear more fruits.

After the homily, the novices professed their vows, which were received by Brother Joachim, Provincial of Nigeria on behalf of the Superior General.

At the end of the mass, the parish priest thanked all present for their attendance. He called on all to always pray for the newly professed Brothers so that they may not falter.

After the mass, everyone present was invited to share a meal at the novitiate.

The newly professed have since returned to their country and are now on holidays getting ready for the next stage of their formation in Nairobi.
