Seminar on Minors and Vulnerable Adults in the Vice Province of Nigeria.


It was an enriching week in the Vice Province of Nigeria as the Vice Province organized a Seminar on Minors and Vulnerable Adults for the confreres within the unit. Fr. Ronald J. McAinsh C.Ss.R, the Provincial Superior of the London Province anchored the seminar.

The Seminar which started with the arrival of confreres on Monday 13th May to Friday 17th May 2019 was held at Ibadan, at the Redemptorist Spirituality Centre, Liguori House while some of the confreres were housed in Redeemer House, the student community. The total number of 108 confreres were in attendance and participated actively in the seminar. The aim of the seminar was to educate confreres about the current issues happening in the Church, and how to relate and manage the minors and vulnerable adults around and working with us. Topics on celibacy, sexuality and maturity were treated and questions as well as responses were given. There were also group discussions and presentations from various groups and a healing service. The seminar came to a close on a joyful note as confreres celebrated our oneness as Redemptorists.
