Br Francis Lukong



New District Superior of Western Africa

28/04/2012: Cameroon

The Br Provincial of the Province of Mediterránea and his Council have appointed as District Superior Brother Francis Lukong for a period of three years, starting from his taking up office at the District Chapter to be held from 10 to 15 August 2012.

Br Francis was born on 2/4/1963 in Melf-Kumbo, Nso, Cameroon. He did his primary schooling in his home town and the secondary in Mankon-Bamenda (Sacred Heart College conducted by the Marist Brothers) and Soppo-Buea.

At MIC (Marist International Centre), Nairobi, Kenya, he obtained the Diploma in Educational Sciences and the Bachelor of Theology degree.

Subsequently (1994-98), he obtained his master’s degree in French and History with honours at the University of Wolverhampton, in the United Kingdom. During this period, he took a course at the Jean Moulin Lyon II University in France, obtaining the Diploma of French University Studies (DEUF).

More recently (2006), he gained a Master in Education at the ‘Commonwealth Open University” and he is currently following courses in the Philosophy of Education at the same centre.

He has been engaged in teaching in the Marist colleges of Cameroon, and since 1999 has been Director, first at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Comprehensive College in Mbengwi and then at Saint Albert’s Comprehensive College in Bafut.

Since 2000 he has been District Councillor and at present he has the role of vice Superior of the District. Brother Sylvain Yao is completing his six years at the head of the District.

We wish Br Francis Lukong the best success in the animation of the District, its works and Brothers, and we ask Our Good Mother for her maternal protection.
