Perpetual Oath and Ordinations 2020
Mission is at the heart of our Society and mission defines us as Mill Hill Missionaries. By God’s grace and favour, we celebrated over the weekend this year’s Perpetual Oaths and Ordinations in Second Cycle, Nairobi. These were profoundly significant celebrations of commitment to mission as we wrap up the missionary month of October.
The three-day roller coaster of joyful celebrations in St. Joseph’s Formation Centre began on Saturday 24th October with six of our students in temporary membership committing themselves to life-long service to mission as Mill Hill Missionaries. There were three from Cameroon, two from India and one from DRC.
The following on Sunday 25th October, the Six new perpetual members were ordained deacons at St. Joseph and Mary Parish, Shauri Moyo by Rt. Rev. David Kamau Ng’ang’a, the Auxiliary Bishop of Nairobi. Herman Menjuan, our first Mill Hill Missionaries from Malaysia was also ordained a priest in the same celebration. This double ordination celebration was streamed live on Capuchin TV and on other online platforms so that the family members and friends of the candidates who could not attend the Eucharistic celebration due to Covid -19 restrictions could follow the events live.
Fr. Herman Menjuan, MHM on Monday 26th October, celebrated his first Thanksgiving Mass with the formation community. He is due to return to Malaysia in the course of this week for a holiday and to celebrate with his family before taking up his appointment in Turda, Philippines.
