Bamenda, Cameroon: Priestly Ordination of Fr Emmanuel Abonge Ngeh MHM

Despite the somber mood of the ongoing social political tension and the  rise of coronavirus cases in the Bamenda area, the ordination of  Fr Emmanuel Abonge Ngeh mhm on August 12th, 2020, was a beautiful occasion that brought joy to many, especially the Mill Hill family in Camerooon.

Emmanuel was ordained  by Archbishop Andrew Nkea, at the Big Mankon Cathedral, in Bamenda. Together with Emmanuel there were three priests from the Piarist  Order and 28 Deacons from the Dioceses of Bamenda and Mamfe who were  also ordained during the same celebration that lasted close to five hours! 

A few days after his ordination, on the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Fr Emmanuel’s Thanksgiving Mass took place,  in his home parish of Futru, on the outskirts of Bamenda town! 

Fr. Emmanuel has been appointed  for his first Missionary assignment to the Diocese of Antique, in The Philippines. Two of his classmates, Patrick and Blaise are also to be ordained in the coming month in their home Diocese of Kumbo and in Bamenda.
