Golden Jubilee Launch Update


31-Jan-2012

The Train left the station about a year ago when the Steering Committee was officially put in place and ground work started with preparations culminating in the celebration of The Golden Jubilee of Our Lady of Lourdes College Mankon Bamenda come January 2013.

On Saturday January 28th, 2012, it made a major stopover at Our Lady of Lourdes College Mankon. With the collaboration of the Landlord, the Proprietor, well wishers and all Stakeholders (Students, Parents-Teachers and Ex-Students) we exceeded our Fifty (50) Million target set.

It is important to stress that our goal is Seventy-Five Million FCFA although I see us hitting a Hundred (100) Million FCFA by January 2013 with the commitment taken by all stakeholders during the Glorious launching on Saturday. Everyone who came up promised coming back with more. We definitely shall not relax until we reach our Aspiration.

Special Thanks to the following Media that ensured this great event was covered Nationwide and Internationally - BBC, STV, RTV, Radio Afrique, CRTV and last but no way the least, The Post. Our immerse gratitude for your Partnership.

As promised in my last update, please find attached the Homily delivered by His Grace, Cornelius Fontem Esua, ArchBishop of Bamenda and Proprietor of the College.(Click on links below for the speeches)

This homily is meant to edify and not to point fingers in any direction. It calls for true reconciliation and forgiveness knowing that the Jubilee Year is meant to celebrate God's Favour.

I am also attaching speeches from the Governor of the North West Region - His Excellency Abakar Ahamat, Principal of the College - Rev Sr. Ndidi, and Chair of the Steering Committee - Fellow Mrs Theresa Akenji.

The Golden Jubilee date of Our Lady of Lourdes College Mankon Bamenda has finally been confirmed for 05th January 2013. The Proprietor of the College due to reasons beyond his control would not be available before above mentioned date. Please do accept our sincere apologies for this major change and surely calendars will be updated accordingly. 

It is worth noting that various activities and fundraising events will run throughout the year and intensify during the last week running from December 31st,  2012 to Our grande Jubilee celebration on Saturday January 05th 2013.

For any inquiries or further clarifications, please send an email to the Publicity committee address GoldenJubileePublicity@yahoogroups.com.

God Bless us all.
