The celebration was held in Congolese rite, which began at 9 in the morning and ended at 2 in the afternoon. It was presided over by the Bishop of Kisantu (DR of Congo), Mons . Fidèle Nsielele, accompanied by one hundred religious and diocesan priests. Present were relatives, Claretian Missionary Men and Women and Lay Claretians from Kinshasa , Kikwit and Kindi, Claretian students, postulants, aspirants, friends of the ordinandi and parishioners.

The whole celebration was a true song of gratitude to God for the gift of the priestly vocation and a petition that these our brothers who have received this grace, will make it fructify in their pastoral activities in service to the people. We greet Cyrille, Francis, Jean Paul, Christian, Adrien, Alexander François and Jean Marie, and we wish for them a fertile service in the priestly ministry.
