Four SLIP members visit Sierra Leone to celebrate 25 years since SLIP was founded:
The delegation comprising Fr. Austin Healy CSSp, Mr. Frank Roden, Geraldine and Jim Owens returned from a most informative, enjoyable and consequently worth while 2 week trip on the 17th November. They travelled to many parts of the country including Bo, Kenema, Pendembu, Makeni, Sewafe, Yengema, Koidu and Freetown.
When they visited Freetown they were kindly invited by Ambassador Campbell for dinner at her residence. They were joined for the occasion by 2 members of the Spiritan congregation Superior Fr. John Fella and recently ordained Fr. Emmanuel Bureh.
The Ambassador congratulated SLIP for continuing to support links between the 2 countries. Discussions were wide ranging, with the visitors who were ‘old handers’ in Sierra Leone telling stories of past experiences and exploits while the Ambassador also shared some stories of her immersion into her new post in recent months.
The Ambassador posted congratulations to SLIP on the Twitter account, details of which can be found on the link below:
