On the evening of Thursday 29th October, we said goodbye to Father Jeremias.
We invited all the refugees and co-workers who have known Father to a Farewell Mass, followed by a supper for all. It was a very special occasion, held at our play centre in the fresh evening air. The darkness around us made it all the more intimate and meaningful. It was a fitting tribute and way to celebrate who Father Jeremias is and what he is to us.
What made it all the more special was, that at the end of the mass, he gave out Comboni rosaries to everyone present, which meant so much to everyone. The photos below were taken on the occasion and also show Father giving out the rosaries.
