LOUVAIN, Belgium - On Sunday, September 20, at 2:30 in the afternoon, the bells of the Saint-Peter church will announce a feast, because for the second time, a Montfortian will be ordained priest! After Father Ghislain Kasereka, SMM who was ordained priest on May 5, 2019, his African confrere Aimé Kamanda Solomo will be ordained on that day. Coronavirus pandemic will require concrete adaptations, but will not prevent it from being a memorable event, on the contrary.
It is also a happy event for the Belgian Delegation of Montfortians. The fact that, for a second time, a young Congolese confrere responded with conviction to the request of the Superior General in Rome, to come to Belgium to render service and to be ordained a priest here. His positive response strengthens the prospects and hope of the Belgian Delegation.
Aimé will be of service to the Belgian Church, which is why it has been decided to make it a celebration for the whole ecclesial community. Therefore, the celebration will take place in the Saint-Peter church in Louvain at 2:30 p.m. The ordination will be conferred by Mgr. Koen Vanhoutte, to be assisted by the ceremonial priest Karlo Tyberghien. Joris Verheyden will play the organ.
We cordially invite you to pray and celebrate with Aimé, together with the Belgian Montfortians and the ecclesial community! You can join in on the celebration through the livestream via:
On behalf of the Montfort Fathers of the Belgian Delegation, you are welcome!
