As part of the conferences organized by the Roman Committee to prepare the 150th anniversary of the founding of our Lavigerie Family, Father Jacques Sidibe tells us about “Paul Zoungrana, a Pastor figure, one of the fruits of the work of evangelization of the Sons and Daughters of Cardinal Lavigerie. ” (in French)
Jacques Sidibe is a priest of the diocese of Ouagadougou, ordained in 1999. After a few years of pastoral ministry in a parish, Jacques is sent to Rome for studies, then teaches in two major seminaries. He is received in our community in Rome in 2018 while taking a time of sabbatical at the Urbaniana, when his bishop asks him to take advantage of his presence with us to work on Cardinal Paul Zoungrana, M.Afr., an emblematic figure of the Church of Burkina Faso, as his diocese is preparing to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.
