National Assembly of Confreres of the Nigeria delegation
March 18,,2016 - Nigeria
It was indeed a moment of grace and celebration for the Salesians working in Nigeria to come together to respond to the call of the congregation in re-shaping and re-signifying of the Salesian mission. This coming together of confreres was also in line with the preparation for the fifth provincial chapter. As such the deliberations made during the assembly were done in the light of this discernment. The short but meaningful programme was anchored by Rev. Fr. Stephen Omoniyi SDB, the national moderator for the Nigerian delegation for the Chapter. Each community and presence in Nigeria was represented.
The assembly made some pertinent points which according to the moderator, would be considered during the PC5. Also the news of the provincial requesting all confreres to participate in the on-going consultation was made known.
In his closing remark, Rev. Fr. Anthony Oche SDB, encouraged all to imbibe the spirit of community as this, he opined, would help us be good apostles of the young.
