Parish of San Pedro and San Pablo in Soa: patronal feast with baptisms and first communions of university students

By 2 August, 2018Africa, Cameroon, Culture
As every year, the month of June has been for the San Pedro and San Pablo de Soa University Parish (Cameroon), a great celebration to celebrate its patron saints with liturgical, cultural and sporting events. It all began with the Open Day, held on June 2 and, the next day, Sunday, with the Baptisms and First Communions of our young people. The Day is a way to close the school year, celebrating the patrons of the parish, San Pedro and San Pablo, as well as making ourselves known to many young people and friends of our students, with a program of sports competitions, artistic performances and a Lunch with typical Cameroonian meals made by themselves. All this also serves as a tribute to the new baptized.

The new catechumens were the protagonists, the next day, Corpus Christi, of an emotional Holy Mass and Procession with floral carpet.

On June 24, the Confirmations of the second year students of the Catechesis took place and were received by the Archbishop of the Diocese, Monsignor Jean Mbarga.
As a finishing touch, like all the sisters and brothers of the Institute, we closed the month with the celebration of the anniversary of our Foundation on June 29 (although for program reasons it was held on Sunday, July 1); In addition to reading the lesson that our President, Father Jesus Fernandez, sent us, we had a pleasant moment of coexistence before saying goodbye.
