Missionaries of Africa
Farewell to Fr. Richard
Last Sunday (2011-04-10) we said farewell to Fr. Richard Nnyombi. The Christians of Nabulagala Mapeera Parish had organised a beautufil feast for their Parish Priest of 5 Years. Richard said Mass in the crowded Church, assisted by Bishop Emeritus Baharagate, some confrères and Diocesan Priests. The leader of the Parish Council on behalf of the Christians thanked Fr. Nnyombi for the wonderful work he has done for Nabulagala.
The Provincial, Fr. Rudi Lehnertz, mentioned two main events that characterised the work of Richard
1st the Celebrations of the 130 years of arrival of the Pioneer Missionaries 'Our Ancestors in Faith'.
On this occasion the cause of the beatification of Fr. Mapeera Lourdel and Br. Amans Delmas was launched.
A second important occasion was the re-burial of the first Missionaries in the Memorial Chapel at Nabulagala Parish.
