We were ordained by Bishop Prosper Bonaventure KY, the Bishop of Dedougou in Burkina Faso. The ordination held at Saint John the Baptist Major Seminary, it’s the seminary of the Episcopal conference of Burkina Faso and Niger where we do all our studies. Our Redemptorist formation house is “Maison Saint Gérard Majella”. We thank God for calling us to the Redemptorist family to reach out to the most abandoned.
