Brother Andrew Sikelo

18/10/2004: Malawi

Brother Andrew Sikelo made his perpetual commitment on the 2nd October 2004 in the St. Louis Montfort Parish church in Balaka. He is an elder son in a family of eight and comes from the Mwanga Parish in the southern region of Malawi. He did his secondary schooling at the Mtendere Juniorate (now Marist Secondary School).
Speaking to the congregation gathered in the church, Brother Sikelo thanked all those who helped him on his journey, including his parents, relatives, friends and of course, the Marist Brothers. He also took the opportunity to challenge the youth through this message to them, “Even in a world full of ideas of consumerism, individualism, personal gains and interests, it is still possible to follow Jesus Christ in his chastity, poverty and obedience.”
Monsignor Joseph Kimu VG presided at the Eucharistic celebration, which was concelebrated by many other priests from the diocese and the religious congregations working in the diocese. In his homily, Monsignor Kimu compared the commitment Brother Sikelo was making to an African woman’s service for her family. She looks for three stones, sets them properly with firewood in between to prepare food. Brother Sikelo is to serve the Lord through the three vows. Monsignor Kimu also expressed his gratitude to the Marist Brothers for the wonderful work they do in the diocese. He appealed for more brothers to come and work in the diocese.
This perpetual profession was another opportunity to share Marcellin’s dream with others and a good way of promoting vocations to the Marist way of life.
