Quinquennium Priests Encounter
Quinquennium Programme: East Nigeria Province
From 23 to 26 March, 2020 the East Nigeria Province organized a quinquennium programme for priests under 5years of ordination. The Provincial Superior, Fr Simeon Nwobi CMF celebrated the opening Mass of Thanksgiving. He urged the participants of the programme to strive to imitate Father Claret despite the mission challenges facing our various apostolates. He also intimated the brothers on the projects and challenges in the Province and the Congregation. The participants had time to share their experiences. Fr. Jude Anyanwu CMF the Novice Master and one of the facilitators of the programme, dwelt on the General Chapter Document: Witnesses and Messengers of the Joy of the Gospel. Focusing on the theme, ‘ Listeners and Servants of the Word of God’, he explained the heritage of servants of the Word. This entails the right disposition in preparing the word of God and preaching in the manner of Christ and with the style of Father Claret who were sensitive to their environment and the signs of the times. The facilitators of the programme Frs Kenneth Oguejiofor and Perpetus Igwe, CMFF appreciated the participants for their disposition and collaboration during the course of the spirit-filled encounter. The programme came to an end on 26th March with celebration of the Holy Eucharist by Fr Perpetus Igwe CMF.
