In Angel Guardian Home, two new children were accepted in October. Their mother died, the relatives did not treat the children too well. So Ezinne and Michael came to us in October, 3 and 5 years old. Here you see them with the other children of primary school who have been with us for long. We had said that no boys would be accepted, but principles have value when one knows when to make exceptions.
August 2016: Once again, all the children from Angel Guardian Orphanage in Mgbele have arrived for their long awaited vacations in the main house in Garam.
On June 26, 2016, the congregation existed for 10 years in Nigeria, or rather, on that day the festive celebration was held, while the actual date had been April 4, 2016. Sr. Petricia came from Germany to celebrate with the sisters, the children and about 300 guests. The liturgy was held in Owerri Cathedral, it was a beautiful feast.
The very first of our employees in Garam, Mr. Jonah, left us and the sisters gave him a grand farewell. After the sudden death of Mr. Bernard, the catechist, Mr. Jonah was ready to take up this important work. Since Garam parish has nine outstations, it is good to have a catechist to support the parish priest. Presently Mr. Jonah is in Nanati, near Minna, preparing for his new task.
Finally after long waiting, we saw the blessing of the site and the laying of the foundation stone in the permanent site of the school for Ifetedo in February, 2016. The new site is at the other end of the town, near the secondary school and university. Sisters and children are very happy with this obvious progress although it will be a while until the building can be used.
