The Jerusalem SFG 2010-2011
The first group that started the Small Formation Group in Jerusalem completed its 4-year theological studies with the 2009-2010 Academic Year. Initially, there were seven, but one dropped out at the beginning of the 3rd year. All six are already ordained priests. We wish them a happy missionary life.
This year, the SFG in particular and the whole community of Saint Anne's in general were blessed with the arrival of 5 new energetic, enthusiastic, open-minded, open-hearted, modest and straightforward young men. They are David Songo from Nigeria; he did his apostolic practice in Mali, Frederic Limo from Kenya; he did his apostolic practice in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Emmanuel Mubanga from Zambia; he did his apostolic practice in Mali, Vincent Kyererezi from Uganda; he did his apostolic practice in Algeria, and Jean-Bosco Nibigira from Burundi; he did his apostolic practice in Tanzania. They join 4 older students of whom two are in the 2nd year: Jean Marie Amalebondra from Congo and Boris Yabre from Burkina Faso; and two in the 4th year (deacons): Kanto Hembram from India and Jean de Dieu Bukuru from Burundi.
Though we are in the third week of studies, the Academic Year will be solemnly opened tomorrow by a concelebrated Mass at the Franciscan parish of Saint Saviour in Jerusalem. The point is that the three houses of Formation: Salesians, Missionaries of Africa and Franciscans have strong connections. That's why they decided to have a solemn opening of the Academic Year in a Eucharistic celebration together.
We pray and hope for a happy, fruitful and successful Academic Year.
