The installation of the new parish priest in Boromo

5- in Africa - Date of publication 11-25-2008
The Christian community were gathered together in front of the Church waiting to welcome and greet Father Bertin Dieme as he arrived in his “parishpriestmobile”. But what a surprise! Owing to financial difficulties in the parish the parish priest arrived on foot escorted by the curate, preceded by the altar servers and followed by the choir.

He sat down on the armchair prepared for him in front of the Church and the wife of the catechist offered him the customary welcome drink: the zoomcoom (a drink prepared from millet). The parish priest took a mouthful then handed the gourd to the curate who then passed it on the members of the parish council.

After this rite one of the elders said a few words of welcome, then the celebrant, Father Alfred Ki, introduced the penitential rite. This was followed by the procession into the Church where the Glory to God was proclaimed.

During the homily, the celebrant pointed out that Boromo is a very cosmopolitan town with 6 or 8 ethnic groups and that it is difficult to know all the languages. However, the parish priest knows them all because he speaks the language of love.

At the end of the Eucharist the newly elected parish priest spoke a few words: "The priest is like a public granary where each one can come to draw the spiritual nourishment they need. Let us all pray that this granary will always be full. Diversity is a richness that we must exploit. My wish for you today is that we might conserve unity in order to build a universal brotherhood where our hearts beat in unison and we can grow in faith, love and charity."


The morning drew to a close with a shared meal. Each family with a responsibility in the parish brought a dish and something to drink: the friendly, cheerful atmosphere was appreciated by all the participants.
