Kinshasa (Congo) -- Workshop for seminarians

A workshop for seminarians was held from August 1 to 5 at the Yangambi Center, near Kinshasa.

Taking part were young candidates for the priesthood from Kinshasa and other dioceses such as Inongo, Lisala, northeast of the capital, and Tshumbe, in the center of the country. The main theme was “The Eucharist, Source and Summit of the Priest’s Life,” very appropriate for the Year of the Eucharist. Several conferences were held, combined with periods of study to reread recent magisterial documents on the Blessed Sacrament, including the Encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia and the instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum, issued by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.

Several panel discussions among seminarians were held, moderated by a priest. There was also time for sports and walks through the surrounding countryside. The daily timetable included Mass, praying the Liturgy of the Hours, and Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.
