SADIKI'S ORDINATION IN QUEBEC PDF Print E-mail

.

The sun shone brightly in Québec on August 14th, the day of Sadiki Kyavumba’s priestly ordination. This young Assumptionist was ordained by Cardinal Gerald Cyprien Lacroix, current Archbishop of Québec. Approximately 140 were in attendance in a covid-friendly atmosphere in the chapel of Montmartre. During the singing of the Litany of Saints by a fellow African brother, Sadiki lay prostrate during the emotional ritual. Later, during the Mass, a beautiful hymn was sung in Swahili. Father Dennis Gallagher, North American Provincial of the Assumptionists, vested Fr. Sadiki in his blue chasuble and stole. Cardinal Lacroix presented Fr. Sadiki to the congregation for his blessing. Following the ceremony, Fr. Sadiki greeted guests, including many Lay Assumptionists, as they gathered on the lawn of Montmartre.
