Ten Profess First Vows In the Congregation Of Holy Cross
Ten young men professed their first vows in the Congregation of Holy Cross today the 16th July. The profession of vows took place at the Holy Cross Novitiate, Lake Saaka in Fort Portal.
Drawn from the three East African countries of Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania, their vows were received by Reverend Father Cyprian Binaka, CSC, the Superior of the Congregation of Holy Cross in East Africa.
Preaching on the call of Samuel in the bible, Fr Binaka highlighted how at the call of Samuel, visions and messages from God were rare then. Fr Binaka noted that just as Samuel was called to bring the vision and the message of God to the Israelites, so are the ten newly professed being called to bring the message of God to the world.
The ten newly professed were:
Enock Gabiro, CSC, from Kampala Archdiocese
Brother Francis Asaba, CSC, from Hoima diocese
