Little Flower Church Welcomes Father
Published October 3, 2009
On September 27, 2009 the Little Flower
Altar Society sponsored a Welcome Party for Father
Bartholomew Ibe. Father Ibe, who is from Nigeria, has been
in the states only three months and is adjusting to the
culture of his new congregation. A meal of shrimp gumbo and
sweet potatoes + desserts was provided.
Some of the gifts Father Ibe received
included a large cooking pot with stirring spoons, a food
processor, towels, bath matt with matching shower curtain,
blender, dish towels, cutting boards, a basket of gift
cards and cash.
The event offered an opportunity for
parishioners to interact with Father Ibe and provide a
special welcome to him. He was overwhelmed with the
generosity displayed at the event.
