Ivory Coast: two jubilees at the Carmelite nuns’ monastery in Logbakro

On Saturday, June 17, 2023, at the Carmelite nuns’ monastery in Logbakro, two jubilees were celebrated, one golden and the other silver: that of Sr Marie Pacis of Jesus and that of Sr Marie Bernadette of Eternal Love.

Religious men and women from the United States, Belgium, Rwanda, Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast took part in the celebration. The new bishop of Yamoussoukro, Mgr. Joseph Aka, presided at the Eucharist which was concelebrated by a dozen priests, including Discalced Carmelites. The celebration was full of singing and dancing as a sign of gratitude to God.

After the Mass, a meal was offered and shared in a convivial atmosphere. At the end of the day, after Vespers and dinner, recreation took place together with parents, friends and our Carmelite sisters.
