The Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Mamfe in Cameroon His Lordship Bishop Andrew Nkea has administered the sacrament of Confirmation on Cameroon Concord US Bureau Chief Bertrand Etukeni Agbaw-Ebai including seven other Christians from the Cameroon Catholic Community in Boston. Rev. Dr. Andrew Nkea performed the symbolic Roman Catholic ritual on the last lap of his US visit.  At the Saint Anne Parish Salem, the Bishop administered the Sacraments of Confirmation and Marriage. It was another exciting scenario for the congregation to listen to an inspirational homily from Bishop Andrew Nkea. In explaining the significance of the sacraments, the Bishop of Mamfe gave the Cameroon Catholic Community a take home sermon. In his homily, Bishop Andrew Nkea dwelled on the two sacraments that he had to celebrate within the Sacrament of the Holy Mass: the Sacrament of Confirmation and the Sacrament of Marriage. He stressed the distinction between the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, which God gives for the service of the community, and the fruits of the Holy Spirit meant for the edification and salvation of the individual. What we should aspire for as Christians are for the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Concerning marriage a topic currently heating the Vatican, the man of God said Christian marriage is between one man and one woman for life. Parents, uncles, aunts are external distractions. The ministers of the sacrament of Marriage are the couples themselves with the deacon, priest or Bishop acting as the official witness of the Church.The Bishop of Mamfe congratulated Tina and Johnson Ashu for taking the courageous step to celebrate their wedding as first couple in the Cameroon Catholic Community of Boston. We of Cameroon Concord would love to congratulate our colleague and the 7 Christians who received the sacrament of Confirmation.
