In his homily Archbishop Ziyaye encouraged the newly ordained priest to love their work and serve Christians wholeheartedly and always to be humble following the example of Jesus Christ the high priest.
Father Jos Van Boxel, the Provincial Delegate announced the appointments to the newly ordained priests as follows; that Fr. Levison will serve in Congo [DRC], Fr. Robert will serve in Niger and fr. Jean will serve at Chinsapo parish in the archdiocese of Lilongwe. The provincial delegate encouraged the newly ordained priests to take prayer life seriously in their ministry as a weapon to any challenge to their ministry. The delegate said this as he offered a missionary rosary [that is the special rosary for the missionaries of Africa] because of the situation of the COVID – 19 of which he wished them to be using this rosary daily.
