The Marian Year launched at Our Lady of Lourdes Gardens Parish of Cameroon’s Buea Diocese is expected to foster love and discipleship among the faithful, the Parish Priest has told ACI Africa in an interview.
In the Thursday, February 17 interview, Fr. Herbert Niba highlighted the objectives of the year-long prayer initiative and goals to be achieved.
“The patron Saint of every Christian or apostolic group or Parish has a special task to guard the group and be a source of inspiration,” Fr. Niba said.
He added in reference to the objective of the prayer initiative, “A Marian Year in our Parish is meant to draw special attention to Mary, whose intimacy with the mysteries of Christ, makes her the best person to point to Christ her Son.”
“We are thus calling on Our Lady of Lourdes, to make this Parish named after her into a school of prayer and to promote love and discipleship among Christians,” the Cameroonian Catholic Priest told ACI Africa February 17.
