80 Years of Montfortian presence in Madagascar

Is it not, according to Psalm 80 a sign of vitality for a well-built strong community?  The event was celebrated in the parish of St. Thérèse of Salazmay at Tamatave. On the 17th of September, His Grace Desiré Tsarahazana, the Archbishop of Tamatave has presided over the Eucharist in the presence of the family members of the newly ordained priests and other invitees for the occasion. Fr. Luigi Gritti, the General Councillor expressed movingly the support and accompaniment of the Congregation for the new priests.

On Sunday the 16th of September our collaboration with the diocese was marked by the priestly ordination of two of our confreres Jean Marc and Hervé along with a diocesan deacon Jimmy.

On Tuesday, the 18th of September, the confreres continued their thanksgiving with our newly ordained confreres by way of sharing. Fr. Luigi presented a reflection on the “Protection of Children and the Vulnerable Adults”, which is a follow-up of our General Chapter decisions.

Good wishes to every one engaged in the mission!
