ACLA ENCOUNTER HELD IN OWERRI, EAST NIGERIA

The ACLA Encounter was hosted by East Nigeria Province from 1st – 4th February, 2013, at the Provincial Curia. The Encounter was a special Assembly because it marked the Silver Jubilee of the Formation of ACLA in 1988 in Equatorial Guinea. Recounting the history of the Assembly Fr Marcelo Ensema who represented the Major Superior of Equatorial Guinea recalled how the membership of ACLA has grown rapidly over these twenty - five years. In a special way he highlighted the efforts of the Claretians in Nigeria who have worked hard in establishing missions in other parts of Africa like: Cameroon, Kenya and Ghana.
