Cameroon: Weeklong Centerary Celebrations Mill Hill Missionaries
Events leading up to the Centenary Celebration of Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon.
On Saturday 12th November, pilgrims gathered at Mill Hill House Foncha Street Nkwen for a prayer walk to St Joseph’s Cathedral Mankon Bamenda. Hundreds of faithful gathered to mark off the week-long celebration of the Centenary of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon.
The prayer walk that lasted three hours was graced with music, dance and thanksgiving to God for the gift of faith and the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon. Remembering the footsteps of the first Missionaries who arrived Cameroon in 1922, the pilgrims were grateful for the seed of faith planted in the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda.
As part of the programs celebrating the Centenary, the pilgrims walked with a tree each to the Cathedral. This is part of the many efforts to save and safeguard the environment. In promoting Laudato Si, the pilgrims were passing an important message as we celebrate the centenary of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon: “plant a tree and save a life”. A tree was symbolically planted at the Cathedral to officially start the week-long celebration of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon.
On Thursday 17th November at 10am, Friends of Mill Hill shall have the “Baobab” Mass (a mass to remember and pray for the deceased and living Missionaries and Friends of Mill Hill). The Mass shall be presided by Fr Michael Corcoran, General Superior of Mill Hill who is currently on visitation in Cameroon.
On Friday, 18th November, Christians from different parts of the country will gather to celebrate the Centenary of the Mill Hill Missionaries in Cameroon at the St Joseph’s Metropolitan Cathedral Bamenda beginning at 9am. Bishops and hundreds of priests are expected in attendance.
