Dear brothers and sisters, apostles of the Divine Mercy in Africa,
May the Peace, Love and Mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ the Divine Mercy Incarnate be with you and all the Devotees/Lovers of the Divine Mercy Devotion in your country both now and always. Amen.
I write to invite you to the Second Africa/Madagascar Congress on the Divine Mercy Devotion. The theme of the Congress is : PROCLAIMING THE DIVINE MERCY MESSAGE IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT.
The Congress will take place as follows :
Ø VENUE : The Spiritual Year Seminary, Ozubulu, Nnewi Diocese, Nigeria
Ø DATE : Thursday 8 – Sunday 11, August 2013.
The Congress will offer us the opportunity to deliberate on the Divine Mercy Devotion in our different Countries and Regions in Africa and Madagascar. We will also work out a Divine Mercy collaborative Network for Africans and prepare the African Continent for the WACOM taking place in Bogota Colombia in 2014.
We are inviting you to come with a Devotee from your country. All arrangements have been put in place to send you letters of invitation for visa purposes and to cater for your welfare as soon as you arrive Nigeria. Please indicate your interest to join us by replying to this email immediately. You can also contact us with the following numbers : Bishop Martin Uzoukwu - +234-8037003784 (email : bpmiuzoukwu chez yahoo.com) or Fr Chido - +234-7031926691 (email : chiefdozie chez yahoo.com).
Because of the logistics in getting interpreters, the delegation from your country should be bi-lingual in order to follow the proceedings of the Congress and participate actively in the meetings.
May God bless you and all the Devotees as you prepare for this Congress.
Yours in Jesus Christ and Mama Africa
