(Ibadan, Nigeria) It was very unique and remarkable moment on the feast day of Our Mother of Perpetual Help as our Patroness and our Perpetual Help of the Redemptorists of the Vice Province of Nigeria, who joined the Holy Mass to mark the feast and the renewal of the temporary vows and the institution of Sub-deacons or Acolytes on 27th June.
The Holy Mass was celebrated at the Ligouri House Chapel in the Redemptorists Spirituality Centre Ibadan, Oyo State. The main celebrant was the Vice Provincial Fr. Joterio Aghoja C.Ss.R, who during the Mass received the vows of 26 students who renewed their temporary vows. Six of the confreres received the minor Order of the ministry of Reader, while three of the confreres received the minor Order of the ministry of Acolyte. Three Pre-novices were also present to participate and witness the ceremonies of the day.
The celebration concluded on a joyful note as confreres enjoyed the company of the confreres and shared the fellowship meal as together we celebrated the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
May God bless all our confreres and may our Mother of Perpetual Help intercede for all our needs of the Vice-Province.
