Headline: AFRICA/GABON – Sunday 29 September solemn closing of the Jubilee for the 175th anniversary of the Church in Gabon
Libreville – “Celebrating the 175th anniversary of the arrival of Spiritan missionaries in this land is important not only for the Church in Gabon but also for the sister Churches. In fact, from Gabon the Fathers of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit left to spread the Gospel in neighboring lands such as the present Congo Brazzaville, where they arrived 30 years later”, says His Exc. Mgr. Francisco Escalante Molina, Apostolic Nuncio in Gabon and in Congo Brazzaville. On Sunday 29 September there will be a solemn ceremony that closes the Jubilee for the 175th anniversary of the evangelization of Gabon, which started in September 2018.
