Six apostles of youth



First profession in Ghana

26/06/2012: Ghana

On the 9th of June 2012 at the Sacred Heart Parish, Trede, Kumasi, Ghana, at 10:00am six young men committed themselves to the service of the Lord and the Church in the Institute of the Marist Brothers of the Schools. The young men testified to the joy of this day and what more could have been a better way to complement this than the opening song: “I was glad when they said, “let us go to God’s house””. Even though in the shower season, the day started with a beautiful sunrise which continued the whole day, courtesy of the Lord, the Most High.

Among those who graced the occasion were Most Rev. Justice Yaw Anokye, Archbishop elect of Kumasi Archdiocese, who was also the main celebrant of the Eucharistic celebration; traditional authorities among whom was the “Trede Hemaa” (the queen mother of Trede), who has had a long standing friendship with the brothers. Religious men and women and lay people from home and abroad were also happy witnesses of this joyous event.

The main celebrant, Most Rev. Justice Yaw Anokye, in his homily, advised the young brothers to have faith and to remain steadfast in times of trial and temptation. The novices made their vows into the hands of Rev. Br. Joachim Ezetulugo, the Provincial of Nigeria. He also girded the young Brothers with their cords on which are tied three knots, each representing the vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience.

The internationality of the Marist Brothers was really visible as all six young brothers come from almost every country of the District of West Africa and the Province of Nigeria; Br. Ogiri Paschal Robert is Nigerian, Brs. Hans Burinyuy and Mbang Abel are Cameroonians, Br Francis Joseph is Liberian, Br Kone Bruno from Cote D’Ivoire and Br Adoumdje Vincent is Chadian.

Let us keep praying through the intercession of our Good Mother Mary, star of evangelization and queen of good vocations, for an increase in vocations in the Church and especially to the Marist way of life.

Br. Hans Berinyuy Burinyuy
