Ethiopia: Pastoral visit of the Superior General in the District of Lwanga

Friday 24 March 2017

This Friday, the Superior General had two important appointments. The first with Cardinal Berhaneyesus Demerew Souraphiel, Archbishop of Addis Ababa and the second with the Apostolic Nuncio Luigi Bianco. The Ethiopia Catholic University St. Thomas Aquinas (ECUSTA) was the agenda of the meeting with these two personalities.

The visit of the site then made it possible to realize the state of progress of the work of this university whose administration has been entrusted to the Brothers of the Christian Schools by the Ethiopian Episcopal Conference. In the afternoon of that same Friday, the Statutes and the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) were signed between the Cardinal, Archbishop of Addis Ababa, representing the Episcopal Conference and the Superior General, Representing the Brothers of the Christian Schools, concerning the rebirth of this catholic university. A bishop present and the coordinator of the sector of Ethiopia were also invited to sign these documents.

A meeting with the Sector Council, followed by a thanksgiving mass with the celebration of Br. Peter De Groot’s 60 years of religious life, ended this busy day. That was the end of the visit of the sector of Ethiopia.
