SAP Provincial Council gathered on the third week of March at FENZA, Lusaka, for its first meeting of the year. As usual, the four Sectors of the Province were represented by their Provincial Delegates and their Councillors. From Rome, Francis Barnes was also present with his usual sense of humour. A word of thanks was given by the Provincial, Felix Phiri, to Serge St-Arneault who will be ending his mandate as Provincial Secretary in few months from now. He has been appointed as Director of the Afrika Center in Montreal, Canada. Michel Meunier will replace him from July 2017.
This is the time the Lord has made, let us rejoice! Another year gone. A new one coming! Let us pray so as to solidify our common vision and unity within our SAP Province. Prayer for Missionaries Lord Jesus Christ, Watch over your missionaries, lay people, religious Sisters and Brothers and Priests, who leave everything to give testimony to your Word and your love. In difficult moments sustain their energies, comfort their hearts and crown their work with spiritual achievements. Let the adorable image of you crucified on the Cross which accompanies them throughout life, speak to them of heroism, generosity, love and peace. Happy New Year 2014
