February 25: Celebration in memory of Sr. Renée Guido POPPA, Oblate of the Assumption with Françoise NYIRAGENDO, a Rwandan aspirant PDF Print E-mail

.

I. The story of the OA Mission in Rwanda and the Remembrance of the 1992 event

The Oblates of the Assumption - Religious Missionaries were established in Rwanda in 1981, responding to the call of the Church through the voice of Bishop RUZINDANA, Bishop of Byumba who needed nuns for catechetical formation, vocational formation (sewing and culinary arts for women and girls out of school) and the care of the sick (in a dispensary).

From1990 a current of rebellion began in the mountainous regions, protesting against the government of Juvenal HABYARIMANA who had been in power since 1973. Guerrillas sowed terror in the villages and many victims were massacred throughout the years 91-93. They aimed at overthrowing those in power. Many of those displaced, fleeing the insecurity surrounding the area, were flocking to the mission where our sisters were at the service of all without distinction of religion or ethnicity: care of the wounded - supervision of raped women - care of malnourished children. Sister Renée Guido Poppa, who had come to assist the sisters for a year, was a consolation for these refugees. It was in these conditions that a battalion of rebels rushed to the dispensary and the convent on the night of 25 to 26 February 1992. Tragedy struck our community: Sister Renée GUIDO POPPA and Francoise NYIRAGENDO (post mortem postulant) were killed by rebels who spread terror in Byumba Region.

With all our brothers and sisters of the Assumption family, as well as the laity with whom we journey; we would like to celebrate the memory of Sr. René Guido Poppa and give thanks for the gift of her life given to the service of the Kingdom and to the brothers and sisters beyond the borders.

While “Villino Duffault,” Assumption College’s Campus in Rome, Italy, is usually home to undergraduates spending their fall or spring semesters abroad,   this summer, Rome, as well as several other Italian cities, became a classroom for students in the College’s MBA program.

From June 4- July 3, a small group of graduate students traveled to Italy to study the economy, learn new skills, and obtain a better understanding of a different culture, customs, traditions, and way of life. While much of the one-month trip was spent in Rome visiting historical, cultural and political sites of interest such as the Bank of Italy, European Union Headquarters, Mount Vesuvius, St. Peter’s Basilica, the U.S. Embassy Trade Department, the students also explored the villages of Florence and interned with local businesses in Como, Italy.

SEEKERS GET NEW OUTLOOK ON CHURCH PDF Print E-mail

.The article was first reported by The Catholic Free Press

January 10, 2019

By Tanya Connor

“Only older Catholics like to go to Mass, adoration and confession. The faith is dying. It should be more fun.”
Friends say such things to Dale Brown, a student at Nichols College in Dudley. But he has a different perspective after attending a conference.
The Jan. 3-7 conference in Indianapolis – SEEK2019: Encounter Something More” – was sponsored by the Denver-based Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS).

More than 17,000 people from around the world registered for the gathering that included talks, entertainment, adoration and Masses celebrated by bishops and priests, a press release said. There were tracks for college students, campus ministers and “lifelong mission.”

INTERVIEW WITH FR. BENARD ODHIAMBO, A.A. PDF Print E-mail

FR. BENARD ODHIAMBO, A.A.Interviewer – Would you share a bit about your background: family, childhood, early education etc.?

Fr. Benard – I was born in 1977 into a very strong Catholic family in Kenya and was the third of six boys. There were four other boys who died at a very young age. Immediately after my First Holy Communion, I became an altar boy and during this time I was influenced by the sisters who were residing and working in the parish. From a young age, I had been interested in the priesthood. I was also fortunate enough to attend a Catholic high school.

- Where/how did your Assumptionist roots begin? Did anyone in particular have a significant impact on your life?

- Initially, it was my family, parish and the Franciscan Sisters of St. Anna who influenced my faith and encouraged a devotion to Mary and the Rosary. They wholeheartedly supported my interest in priesthood.  At 19 years of age, I obtained a booklet on all congregations and attended an ‘Come and See’ weekend in Nairobi where I met Fr. Richard Brunelle, A.A.  Twelve of us attended but only two of us were invited to begin the discernment process. Up until that time I did not know the difference between diocesan priesthood and those belonging to religious congregations.
