Togo: Priestly ordinations of Brothers Bruno and Emmanuel-Marie in Lomé

Brothers Bruno de Jésus (Adje K. Messan) and Emmanuel-Marie de la Croix (K. Dogbevi) were ordained priests by Msgr. Nicodème A. Barriga-Benissan, Metropolitan Archbishop of Lomé (Togo), on Saturday, August 6, 2022 in Adamavo, in the parish of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face. With them were ordained another 9 deacons from different religious congregations.

They prepared for this ordination with a spiritual retreat preached by Br Bernard Halla, OCD, on the theme: «Intimacy with Christ, foundation of a successful priesthood».

May the Lord bless and make fruitful the priestly ministry of our two confreres. May God bless and fill Carmel with holy vocations. We express our warmest congratulations to our confreres Bruno de Jésus, Emmanuel-Marie de la Croix, to the Provincial Delegation of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross and to the Iberian Province!
