  • Description

    TWELVE YOUNG CONGOLESE WOMEN HAVE ENTERED THEIR NOVITIATE AT THE CHURCH OF ST. PIERRE IN KINSHASA. AT THE SAME TIME, FOUR NUNS COMPLETED THEIR FINAL VOWS.

    THE CEREMONIES WERE PERFORMED BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF KINSHASA, MONSIGNEUR MALULA, IN THE PRESENCE OF PRESIDENT JOSEPH MOBUTU AND CARDINAL GARRONE. THE NUNS AND NOVICES ARE ASPIRANTS TO THE CONVENT OF STE. THERESE DE L'ENFANT JESUS.

    ARCHBISHOP MALULA PRAISED THE NOBILITY OF THEIR VOCATION, WHICH HE SAID SYMBOLISED THE INTEGRATION OF PURELY AFRICAN VALUES INTO A CHRISTIANITY ADAPTED TO THE SPIRITUAL CONCEPTS OF AFRICA. THE NOVICES RECEIVED THEIR VEILS FROM THE ARCHBISHOP AND THEN THE NUNS TOOK THEIR FINAL VOWS AND RECEIVED THEIR RINGS. THE CEREMONY ENDED WITH NUNS AND NOVICES TAKING HOLY COMMUNION.
