Final Profession of Brother Dinayen Brendan Ghakanyuy

28/01/2015: Cameroon

Monday December 22, 2014 marked another milestone in history of the Marist District of West Africa in Cameroon as many Marist gathered together with family members, the Christian community of Tatum, priests, many religious men and women, and well wishers to witness the final profession of Brother Dinayen Brendan Ghakanyuy. They all enlivened the Saint Pius X Catholic Church Tatum where the occasion took place, presided at by the Bishop of Kumbo, His Lordship George Nkuo.

In his sermon, he called on all to support Brother Brendan as he stood before the Lord to pledge his life commitment as a disciple of Christ by living the evangelical counsels. He reminded Brother Brendan of the fact that religious profession involves taking the evangelical counsels of poverty, obedience and chastity but living it is a matter of a life time. He called on him to be steadfast and courageous and to always look up to Christ in daunting and difficult moments. He ended by calling on all present to pray for Brother Brendan as he starts his missionary journey and called on Brother Brendan to always look to Mary as his model and intercessor.

In his address the superior of the Marist Brothers for the District of West Africa, Brother Francis Lukong, reiterated the fact that  Brother Brendan had consecrated himself to God as a religious in the congregation of the Marist brothers and is now available to render service wherever and whenever he is needed, to embrace and love everyone as brothers and sisters in Christ and to accept the will of God through his superiors. He equally thanked the parents of Brother Brendan for giving their son to the church. He furthermore reminded the congregation that the field of evangelization of the Marist Brothers is the school and that they are called to make the young people know and love Jesus in the way of Mary. After this, pictures were taken and dancing and singing graced the occasion.
