Bamenda, Cameroon: 12 Mill Hill Missionary Students Take Temporary Oath

On Sunday the 14th, on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, 12 young men in the Mill Hill formation House, Bamenda, took  the Society Temporary Missionary Oath in a beautiful and low key  celebration attended by a few family members of students, Friends of Mill Hill and members.

During the celebration of the Temporary Oath, besides each of the 12 students receiving a Missionary Cross and the Constitutions of the Society, they also received a local cultural symbol of a Gong, an instrument used by messengers  as announcers of important information in the village . In receiving the Gong, Fr. Richard Njoroge, the Society Representative in Cameroon, reminded the new Temporary members  that  through the Missionary Oath they have taken, they have become messengers and announcers of the Gospel of Christ wherever they go.

The 12 students are on the verge of completing their first cycle of formation in July this year, in August,  5 of them have been recommended   to proceed to  the 2nd Cycle of Formation, to our Formation Centre in Nairobi, Kenya  for Theological studies while 7 of them  have been recommended to go for two years Overseas Missionary Experience- (MEP).
