Preparations are being made for the fourth Orientation Programme which will begin in Nairobi, Kenya, in September of 2018.

The third Orientation Programme took place in Tamale, Ghana from September to December 2017.

The opening ceremony was a moving event with the Brothers assembling to enter into this significant event in the life of the Congregation of Christian Brothers. Guests from the local area added to the celebration. We were delighted to have Archbishop emeritus Gregory Kpienbaya and the Vicar of the diocese, Fr Matthew Yetiere. The FMM Sisters and a Sister from the Msola Congregation were present as was a representative of the White Fathers. Brothers Allan and John from the Presentation Brothers community were also there as well as Fr Christopher and Monsignor Andrew, our neighbours at Br. Paul Noonan Formation Centre.

It was a real blessing to have a representative of the District Leadership Team from Sierra Leone, Br Andrew Turay, who is visiting the Brothers’ Choggu community.

The ceremony began with dancing from the students of the Brothers’ Secondary School and the ceremony of the calabash where the invited participants were offered water as a way of welcome to the stranger.  The choir from the parish of Saints Peter and Paul provided some beautiful singing at the beginning of the ceremony as well as at key moments of the paraliturgy.

The Brothers who will participate in the OP are: Ackim Lucinda Simasiku, Alysious Yusifu Sefoi, Amandi Mboya, Bill Colford, Bonaventure Muunga, Dominic  Kargbo, Emmanuel Allieu, Joseph Kapalua, Leo Liyungu, Peter Malama, Clifford Scott Bock and Ian Robertson. Amandi did not make it for the opening ceremony.

During the liturgy Br Chris Meehl gave an inspiring talk on the significance of Journeying Together, and each participant expressed their readiness to enter into the process when they were invited for form the inner circle where they brought a lighted candle to affirm their commitment.  The closing of the ceremony had the invited guests extending their right hand in blessing over the Brothers for the Orientation Programme.  The choir ended with the song, "We are Companions on the Journey".  Light refreshments followed where people could mingle and get to know each other.
