On 9 October 2021, during a beautiful ceremony in Kigali, Rwanda, Brother Jean Damascène Barindira professed his perpetual vows as a Brother of Charity. The Superior General, Brother René Stockman, accepted his profession.
Brother Jean Damascène pursued his studies in pedagogy and is now a teacher of religion in our secondary school in Huye.
The choir of our second-year novices, under the skilful direction of their novice master Bro. Bienvenue, enlivened the celebration of the Eucharist.
Despite the restrictions that still apply here due to the COVID pandemic, some family members were able to attend the ceremony.
The family photo with the brothers of the region and the novices is a lasting memory of this beautiful day.
