    JEAN-PAUL, THE YOUNG SON CONGO-KINSHASA PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU, WAS CONFIRMED IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC FAITH AT A SERVICE IN BRUSSELS RECENTLY.

    JEAN-PAUL MOBUTU WAS ONE OF 60 PUPILS OF THE INSTITUTE OF ST. JEAN BAPTISTE DEL SALLE, BRUSSELS, WHO WERE CONFIRMED BY THE APOSTOLIC NUNCIO, MONSIGNOR ODDI. FOUR OF THE OTHER PUPILS WERE ALSO FROM CONGO-KINSHASA.

    MADAME JOSEPH MOBUTU, JEAN PAUL'S MOTHER, WAS PRESENT AT THE SERVICE. SHE WAS VISITING BELGIUM AND MEETING CONGOLESE STUDENTS DURING HER STAY.

    AFTER THE CONFIRMATIONS, JEAN-PAUL RECEIVED HOLY COMMUNION FROM THE NUNCIO. THEN HE AND THE OTHER BOYS WERE GIVEN CERTIFICATES.

    MONSIGNOR ODDI THANKED MADAME MOBUTU FOR BEING PRESENT ON THE OCCASION OF HER SON'S CONFIRMATION, AND LATER ADVISED JEAN-PAUL ON THE CONTINUATION OF HIS RELIGIOUS OBSERVANCE.
