The vows were made in the hands of the Prior Provincial, Brother Richard Ogedengbe, OP, at St Thomas Aquinas Priory, Ibadan, Oyo State. The celebration was a colourful one. In attendance were priests from different dioceses and religious Orders and congregations. The presence of the male and female religious, family members, friends and worshipping community members also added colour to the celebration.
In his homily, the Prior Provincial, among other things, admonished the solemnly professed brothers to strive to follow Christ simply as Dominic did, so that they can bear witness to Christ by their vows of chastity, poverty and obedience.
