Fr. General encourages expansion of Order’s presence on all fronts

Nairobi-Kenya (09-02-2012).- During the week’s celebration of this Congress for Africa and Madagascar in Nairobi, Fr. General spoke of the need to project the Order’s presence throughout Africa.

Provincials, Delegates and Representatives of each of the African regions in which the Order is present took part in this Assembly with Fr. General and Fr. George Tambala, General Definitor for Africa. The focus of the meeting was to discuss the present day reality and the future of the Order in the continent of Africa.

Fr. General, as he outlined the history of the Order in Africa and its gradual expansion, reminded the delegates that they had gathered “in the name of the Lord and for the good of the Church”. He appealed for cooperation among all the circumscriptions in the various enterprises undertaken by the Discalced Carmelites throughout the continent.

On the same note, Fr. George Tambala spoke of “A Possible Shared Project for the XXI century” in which he called for a new collective incentive that would help in sharing challenges.
