The Presentation Brothers West Africa Celebrated Final Vows
The Presentation Brothers West Africa Province is a male International religious congregation working in the Catholic Diocese, celebrated the final profession of Brother Obiabo Innocent John recently at St. Gabriel Catholic Church Nyamor in Gboko west. The holy mass was presided over the vicar general, Fr. Emmanuel Udu on behalf of the Catholic Bishop of Gboko who was engrained.
In his homily, he said that the apostolate of the brothers is misunderstood, that people continue to ask them if they are priests. He said that the services of the brothers to the church are so much. The religious brothers are the engine of the church because of the various roles played by them that the people don’t know about, he said.
He urged the people in the church to watch the religious brothers and to emulate their lives. He asked the people present there to continue to pray for the Presentation Brothers family in Nigeria and in other parts of world, that they may be able to carry out their apostolate in the service of the church and humanity.
Final, he urged Brother Obiabo Innocent John to accept the challenge ahead of him in good faith where he is missioned to Catholics and he is called to the service of the church.
The congregation leader, Brother Agoah Xavier Francis, thanked the parents of Brother Obiabo Innocent John for giving him to the congregation and the church.
