Fr Arturo Sosa SJ celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ in the West Africa Province (AOC) at the courtyard of the provincial house, St Peter Fabre in Douala, Cameroon. The Mass gathered Jesuits, friends of the Ignatian family and Collaborators.

The Sunday Mass began at 10:30 am and was concelebrated by Fr Fratern Massawe SJ, Fr Hyacinthe Loua SJ, provincial of AOC and Jesuit priests working in Douala. During his homily, Fr Arturo Sosa SJ thanked Collaborators  and the CLC members, wishing all peace and hope: “I thank you for your friendship with us and for your dedication to the Lord”. He encouraged the Ignatian family to continue the good work and to be witnesses of the joy of the Christ in their various apostolates: “As Ignatian family, we have experienced and we are experiencing in a very special way this Easter, the deep joy of communion with the Lord those saddening experiences of our daily life and of our mission in the Lord’s vineyard. I pray that we all enjoy the consolation and new life with the Lord who wishes to say: Courage, keep on with the journey!” 

 The Mass was also a special occasion as the there was the blessing of the new chapel at the provincial house still under construction, the chapel is named 'La Storta'.
