My dear friends,

It is with great joy that I share with you news of the official grand opening of the Beni school, the result of the generosity and prayers of so many of you. The school has been operating for two months now but the Assumptionists in the Congo wanted to highlight the importance of this school and its significance. On Monday, November 7, 2016, students, teachers, parents, friends, political authorities, and many Assumptionists gathered for a Mass of Thanksgiving.

In his homily, the provincial of the Assumptionists in Africa, Fr. Protais Kabila, underlined the raison-d’etre of the school: “education for peace, justice, reconciliation, and tolerance among people, in a word, educating for human dignity in the spirit and the tradition of the Assumptionists. In the footsteps of Fr. Emmanuel d’Alzon, our founder, we are investing in education wagering that it is a leaven that has the power to transform society, accompanying people ‘until Christ be formed in them’. That is why this school has taken as its motto: ‘Discipline, Peace, Excellence’.”
