Audience with the Pope – continuation and end

During the audience, I was only allowed to take pictures from my seat. So I couldn’t take a picture of our group during the audience. Here are three official photos, for which we have purchased the publication rights:

Here is the picture of the thanking word from our Superior General Stan Lubungo.

Episcopal ordination of John MacWilliam

On Saturday 20th of May 2017, our confrere, John MacWilliam, was ordained bishop by Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, MAfr, at Worth Abbey in England, where John had completed high school.

John was indeed appointed Bishop of Laghouat-Ghardaïa, succeeding Claude Rault, M.Afr., who had resigned several months ago, having reaching the limit age of activity as bishop. John preferred to receive episcopal ordination in England rather than in Algeria where visas take a long time to be granted.

Live from Jerusalem… 2000 years later

The least we can say looking at the pictures the confreres sent us is that the celebration of Palm Sunday is a big event in Jerusalem… Of course it would be because it is precisely there that Jesus entered as King in order to save us.

Easter Vigil at the General House

At the General House, we celebrated Easter in a rather small community. The main room was beautifully decorated with wardrobe from the Furniture Warehouse, where most came in to admire the room and works. Most of the General Council were visiting our communities around the world, many of the students were on holiday, mainly doing pastoral work in Italy and elsewhere, some of the remaining few were getting a feeling of how Easter was being celebrated in Rome. Sixteen of us, including the mother of our French confrere Laurent Balas, were celebrating the Easter Vigil in our Crypt, led by Mak Caesar Abagna, a ghanean priest who is staying with us while studying at the PISAI.
