Ordination of Zambia Missionaries
By OblateGiving.org, Davi Garris.- Today was the ordination. It was over five hours long. That’s even long in Zambian time. Bishop Michael Pfeifer, OMI, the Bishop of San Angelo, Texas was the presider. It had special meaning for Bishop Pfeifer since he was Provincial of the Southern Province and made the decision to send Oblates to Zambia back in 1984.
The newly ordained include Fr. Humphrey Milimo, OMI, Fr. Chibwe Tembo, OMI, Fr. Sydney Musonda, OMI, Fr. Emmanuel Mulenga, OMI, and Fr. Julius Masaiti of the Redemptorist.
Now it’s time to celebrate! Here are some sights and sounds do the ceremony.
