The First Stone for the Marian Grotto
Soon, Christ the King Parish in Meiganga will have a Marian grotto. Fortunately, the rain which soaked Meiganga all day long on Thursday, 11 April, did not impede the laying of the first stone in the construction of the grotto. Presiding at the ceremony was Fr. Anicet Tchoutsema Zeou, OMI, parish pastor and episcopal vicar for the pastoral zone of Mbéré, together with his associate, Fr. Thomas Bang, OMI, and several parishioners.
This ceremony, brief but full of hope, was meant to energize the faith of the Catholics during Lent, and especially at a time when the city of Meiganga is experiencing some difficulties, for example: the phenomenon of torturing children to death; juvenile delinquency; the cut off of water for over a month, just to mention a few. The Marian grotto will be a place of prayer, of listening and of dialogue with the mother of the Lord, a place of comfort and hope.
