Opening of the workshop on discrimination with Ms. Jeanne-Marie RUGIRA in Notre-Dame-des-Apôtres Region

The session began at 1:30 p.m., on April 3, 2024, at the Notre-Dame-des-Apôtres Regional House. The official opening included a prayer led by the leadership team and a word from Sister Angèle NGO NGOK, Regional Leader, during which she welcomed all the sisters, the facilitator Ms. Jeanne-Marie, her student Sister Bénigne KANGAJ, and Sister Ercilia Ferrera, CND, from the General Leadership team. A warm welcome was also given to Sister Evangéline MENGUE, CND, who is currently in Cameroon after studying in Côte d’Ivoire for several years. Sister Angèle also expressed her gratitude to the Generalate team for this wonderful experience that they have enabled us to live during these days of Easter.

The day ended with a Eucharistic celebration in the community chapel.

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Congregation and to the facilitator for this workshop they are offering our Region.
