‘God accompanies a task with the appropriate grace’



Br Vincent Uchenna Abadom, new Provincial of Nigeria

09/05/2017: Nigeria

The general council has appointed Brother Vincent Uchenna Abadom as new provincial superior of the province of Nigeria for a first three-year term.

“I must admit that to be a provincial superior is not an easy thing but I am fully aware that when God gives a task, He accompanies it with the appropriate grace to carry it out,” Brother Vincent told the general house communications office. 

Br Vincent will begin his mandate at the provincial chapter in January 2018.

In his letter to the brothers of the province, superior general Brother Emili Turú thanked him “for his openness and willingness to serve the Institute in this mission as Provincial.” 

Br Vincent was born in Onitsha, Nigeria, on 7 June 1973. He made his first vows on 13 June 1998 and his final vows in 2004.

He was sent to the Rome to study psychology at the Pontifical Gregorian University from 2009 – 2013, and was then sent to the novitiate in Ghana, where he lived until he was appointed as provincial.

In 2015, he was appointed as a member of the International Commission for Brothers Today.

“I wish to use my little knowledge to serve my brothers and to inspire them to embrace the “new beginning” with audacity,” affirmed Br Vincent.
