Bamenda, Cameroon: Tertiary Sisters of Saint Francis Celebrate Link with MHM
On Tuesday, 15th November, the Cameroon province of the Tertiary Sisters of St Francis of Assisi made a maiden visit to the Formation House in Bamenda. As part of the week-long celebration of the centenary of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon, the Sisters visited the Mill Hill Missionaries to show their solidarity, love and support to the Mill Hill Missionaries who brought them to Cameroon 87 years ago.
While visiting the Formation House, the sisters led by their Provincial Superior Sr. Wirba Gloria Kenyuyfoon brought food stuff: bags of beans, maize, gari, onions, Irish potatoes etc. Addressing the students, Sr Gloria praised and thanked the Mill Hill Missionaries for their love, commitment and dedication. She said the Mill Hill Missionaries brought them to Cameroon, nurtured them in faith and formation, supported them materially, spiritually and have left an indelible mark in them and in the Church of the Ecclesiastical province of Bamenda. She emphasized that no matter how much a child has grown, she should never forget her roots. She said the visit was a small gesture to show their love and support to the young ones in formation; the future of the Mill Hill Missionaries.
The General superior of the Mill Hill Missionaries Fr Michael Corcoran thanked the sisters for supporting the Formation House. Fr Elvis Berka, Rector of the Formation House praised the sisters who have always been their mothers and caretakers. The students were full of song and dance to celebrate with the sisters the centenary of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon. The visit comes within the week-long activities marking the centenary celebrations of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon.
