A contingent of brothers and sisters from Queen of Peace Commandery #604 and Aux #510 converged on Friday 7th August 2015 en-route to be part of history, the Ordination of 20 New Priests among which one of their own, Brother Knight Elisee Yao Attiogbe was part. The 33-seater bus zoomed off exactly at 3pm and the travelers went through a vigorous border checks until finally got to their destination around 8.30pm and with the wear and tear, they could only enjoy the supper of the day and kissed their pillows till the next day.
By 6am on Saturday 8th August 2015, the contingent was aboard their shuttle to the Cathedral in Lomé where the event, Ordination of 20 Priests, was taking place. The major event started at 8am under the command of the Mgr. Denis Amuzu-Dzakpah, the Archbishop of Lomé. Over 100 Priests were in attendance and each of the Candidates had only 5 family members allowed into the inner peripheral of the Cathedral. The rest were humbly planted under canopies outside the Cathedral but were entrusted with giant television screens to watch events from inside.
In his Homily, the presiding Archbishop dwelt on the first reading from Numbers 11:11-25; where Moses was lamenting about the Israelites and God asked him to select 70 men on which were entrusted God’s spirit as prophets. From the Gospel of Luke 10:1-9; he said, “The harvest is plenty but the workers are few” and counted, “the new priests are being sent out like sheep among wolves without shepherds. They should therefore be as cunning as snakes and help with the harvest”. He concluded entrusting his spirit on them to go out there like prophets.
The event finally came to a close exactly at 1pm and invited family members and friends were treated to refreshment after which the contingent returned to their hostel.
At 6am on Sunday 9th August 2015, the contingent left the hostel to the church la Croix d’Agbalepedo where Rev. Brother Knight Elisee Yao Attiogbe, SMA was having his first Mass with one of his colleagues, Rev. Augustin Tontasse, SDB. The Ghanaian contingent was met on arrival at the church premises by another contingent of brothers and sisters from the Togo Grand Commandery led by the Grand President Brig. Gen. Michel Dosseh-Anyron and his 1st Vice Col. Agbodjan Edward.
The combined team went about one kilometre outside the church to meet their new brother Priest in his Cap and Sash who inspected a parade flanked by the Togo Grand President and the leader of the Ghanaian Queen of Peace Commandery and Auxiliary delegation, 14th District Commander, Captain James Klu. Queen of Peace squad trooped him into the church with presentation of swords for the Mass to begin.
There was presentation of gifts in the form of items and cash in which Queen of Peace contingent did the honour of presenting him a Stole and Cash. The squad again led his exit from the church with the crossing of swords to signify the end of Mass. Our brother Priest and the Togo Contingent could not hide their joy as they expressed their gratitude for our coming to do our brother the honour.
As anything that has a beginning must surely have an end, the Togo Grand contingent and our Brother Priest bade farewell to their Ghanaian contingent even as refreshment was ongoing.
The return journey started immediately after the afternoon meal and by God’s grace, the bus finally came to a halt at the Queen of Peace Church compound before 6pm where each and every one set off to their various homes.
