Ivory Coast - Dabakala

Sunday, May 6 the Parish "Our Lady of the Poor" at Dabakala celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its foundation. The celebration of the Eucharist was presided over by S. E. Mons. Ignace Bessi Dogbo, Bishop of Katiola.

Ivory Coast - Dabakala
During the celebration, the Bishop administered the Sacrament of Confirmation to 32 catechumens. In his homily he urged the faithful to seek a financial autonomy relying only on themselves. He thanked the Fathers of Betharram to whom the Parish was  entrusted in 1982. Without the presence of the Betharramite religious – the Bishop said - the parish would have been closed down. The Parish Council, who invited to the celebration all the "children" scattered in the region, took the opportunity to organize a charity to raise funds that will be used to complete the house of spirituality and pilgrim hospitality. Mons Ignace Bessi was pleased with the progress of the work and blessed once again the building site. The festival ended with a fraternal meal consumed in the premises of the parish, accompanied by the music of the brass band.
