Dear confreres and friends from the province, present in the province, formerly from the province of West Africa, or having met our confreres, we express our great joy with the forthcoming ordination of four Confreres of the PAO Province. The dates are spaced in time, according to the various Houses of Formation where they study theology.
- Hervé TOUGMA of the Archdiocese of Koupela (Burkina Faso), who will be ordained in Koupela on Saturday 1 July 2017. He will celebrate his Mass of thanksgiving the following day, Sunday, July 2, 2017, in Koupela.
- Clement KPATCHA of the Diocese of ATAKPAMÉ (Togo), to be ordained at ATAKPAMÉ on Saturday, September 30, 2017. For his Thanksgiving Mass, information will be given on the forthcoming invitation.
- Amorain WAYIKPO of the Diocese of ATAKPAMÉ (Togo) and Théophile SAM of the diocese of Koudougou (Burkina Faso), continue their studies of Theology at Merrivale in South Africa. They will be ordered at the end of the year, during the month of December. The invitations will give, in the coming months, information on the dates and places of their ordination.
The provincial team is appealing to you, inviting you to participate generously in the organization of these festivals (participation in the expenses of ordination, thanksgiving, travel, etc.); as well as to the expenses of the departure of these young confreres on Mission (travel expenses to the countries of the Mission are indeed borne by their province of origin). We thank you, in advance, for all the help you can give us. And we reiterate our gratitude to those who have already participated in one way or another for the ordinations of the past year. May the Lord continue to support your efforts.
Thank you in advance to all of you for your generous contributions, to be sent to the Provincial Treasurer in Ouagadougou. May the Lord accompany us and bless you.
Luc Kola, Provincial of PAO
Delphin Nyembo M, Assistant Provincial of PAO
