Kikwit, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The dynamic of the reorganization of the Congo is in motion. The Delegation of the Congo erected by written decree from the Superior General in Rome on April 25, 2012, came in force on July 6, 2012.

For this occasion, the Claretians of the new Delegation gathered together for an Assembly for the first time in Kikwit on July 3, 2012. Presiding was Fr. Gonzalo Fernández, CMF General Consultor and Prefect of Spirituality and Canonical Visitor.

The beginning of the Delegation was made notable in the eucharistic celebration presided over by the Vicar General of the Diocese of Kikwit.

The ceremony for taking possession of the Province by Father Medard Kwango, CMF as Superior of the Delegation took place in the Curia of Kinshasa in the presence of Fr. Gonzalo Fernández. the Claretians of the Delegation, and other members of the Claretian Family.
