This Saturday, July 13, 2019, His Excellency Monsignor Eugene-Cyrille OUNDÉKON, Bishop of Abomey, ordained, in the parish of Christ the King of the Universe of Djimi in Abomey, Benin, two deacons including a diocesan and a candidate for the priesthood of the Order of the Pious Schools. Accompanied by several priests, parishioners of Christ the King, the Cathedral, a large part of his family and his fellow Piarists, Saturnin C. is now one more priest in the Order founded under the laudable intuition of St. Joseph Calasanz.
Father Saturnin lets us hear these words when we listen to what is on his face: “It is a profound joy, the fruit of a process of maturation, discernment, accompaniment, in short, a unique opportunity to give thanks to the One who gives us to be and exist. May the God of mercy make better our ministry as a priest for eternity, as a priest for the salvation of souls, especially of our favorite recipients: poor children. »
We wish a fruitful ministry to our dear colleague Saturnine while praying for him, for his family and for the recipients of his first pastoral care.
P. Victor Emmanuel Diouf Sch. P.
