First Religious consecration at the Marist Novitiate – Kumasi

Three novices from the province of Nigeria and eleven from the District of West Africa made their first profession on the 13th of June at the Marist Brothers International Novitiate, Kumasi – Ghana. The day will be long remembered, as the Marist District of West Africa had a record number of eleven novices (eight Cameroonians, two Liberians and a Ghanaian) who made first religious consecration: an event for the history books. It was rather unfortunate that one of those who made his vows had a broken leg, but he was able to participate without any major hitch.

The main celebrant of the day, Most Rev Gabriel Anokye, Bishop of the Obuasin diocese, challenged the young men not to be afraid of the task that lies ahead of them. He called on them to be zealous and faithful religious. In addition, he encouraged them to live like Father Champagnat who was a man of great piety and devotion to our Blessed Mother.

Many priests, religious and laity attended the ceremony. The newly professed Brothers have now left the novitiate to return to their respective countries of Liberia, Ghana, Cameroon and Nigeria. It is our wish that the Lord who called these young men may lead them faithfully to the end of their journey.
