Ndola-July-2014-01b2

Reinhold Bloching is celebrating his Golden Jubilee of priesthood this year. The community of Ndola organized a special celebration to commemorate it on Tuesday the 8th July in Ndola. A simple but joyful gathering brought about thirty people, mostly Religious Sisters, diocesan priests and Missionaries of Africa. Reinhold has set up a remarkable church at New Kaloko in the outskirt of Ndola. The inside church is decorated with African symbols in line with the local culture. Congratulation for this outstanding achievement.

At this same occasion, the Missionaries of Africa thanked Jules Roy, who celebrated this Jubilee last year, as he is getting ready to leave his beloved Zambia after 51 years. Like an old elephant, Jules said, leaving the heard to move its way alone, so is his feeling today. We wish him a good retirement back home in Canada. The departure of Jules from Lusaka is on the 31st July 2014.
