Thursday, 15 May 2008 09:46

On May 1, 2008, the annual fraternal gathering of the Province of Zambia was held at the Friary in Garnerton. Many Friars, both young and old, we in attendance.

The day was animated by Bishop Charles Noel O'Regan, Bishop of Ndola, who gave an inspiring presentation on the forthcoming African Synod to be held in 2009. Following the Bishop, Friar Tadeusz, General Assistant for AFCOF, walked us through the Six Year Plan of the Order. The Bishop presided over the Eucharist in honor of our Jubiliarians (87th, 80th, 75th birthdays, and 50 years of Solemn Vows and Priesthood). The day ended with a fraternal banquet, after which the Friars returned to their various Friaries.
