December 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, was a special day for the Claretians of Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso: the day of the official launching of the new Dependent Delegation, St. John Paul II. The Delegation continues to depend on the Province of Poland, as our documents underlined.
The government of this new Delegation is composed of Fr. Valentin N’Guessan as Superior Delegate, Fr. Andrew Cantona Adukwaw, as Consultor Ecónome and Fr. Michael Oladigui Olawy as Consultor Secretary. Likewise, Fr. Franck Paré will be in charge of formation, given a large number of students in this new Delegation. Fr. Manuel Tamargo, the General Econome was also present on behalf of Fr. General. With him, were Fr. Lord Winner, Fr. Maria John and Fr Piotr Beza, the Provincial Superior of Poland.
This day was also the occasion for brothers Evrard Yamede Djahounkata and Magloire Adou Kouame to receive the ministry of acolyte.
