Hosanna, Ethiopia – Saturday, 7 May 2022 was a historic day for our brothers in Ethiopia. After 12 years of being active there, the Congregation was able to accept the first three Ethiopian brothers for their perpetual profession.
It was with a grateful heart that the Superior General, Brother René Stockman, accepted Brother Elias Abunte, Brother Paulos Semebo, and Brother Yohannes Mamo, and welcomed them permanently into the Congregation. The solemn celebration of the Eucharist in the newly built cathedral of Hosanna was presided over by the bishop emeritus of the vicariate from which the three brothers hail.
Today, the Brothers of Charity maintain a presence in Addis Ababa, in Gambela, in Nekemte, and in Yirgachefe, providing support to children with disabilities and caring for the sick.
