Brother Eloi – from Togo, Bros Emmanuel, Isaac, Luc, Richard and William – all the 5 from RD Congo – and Bro Steven, from Senegal pronounced their first vows, on September 4th, in Saint-Paul Parish Church at Dapaong, Togo.
Previously, they had their retreat to mark the end of their Noviciate year from the 20th to the 27th August, at Dzogbégan Monastery. About ten priests, together with Bishop Jacques, bishop emeritus, concelebrated the Eucharist presided over by the Parish Priest.
More than thirty Brothers surrounded the newly professed, with a good participation of the Laity of the Parish. It was a simple, beautiful and very prayerful celebration.
