Welcoming of Rev. Fr. Rikinson BANTOU
New Parochial Vicar To Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church: Archdiocese of Miami
The Word of the Lord came to me saying: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart… See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down… to build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:5-10
On this note, with joy and thanksgiving to the Lord, we welcome Fr. Rikinson BANTOU to the Catholic Church Community of Notre Dame d’ Haiti as the new Parochial Vicar.
Today is the beginning of a new month. It is also the beginning of a new chapter in the Book of the ministerial life of Notre Dame d’ Haiti Catholic Church.
Your presence, Fr. BANTOU is a blessing to us, for your priesthood is the priesthood of the High Priest, Jesus Christ. Just as the Lord has promised to Jeremiah, know that you are not alone in your ministry. It is in line of that, I am requesting that you, the leaders of the groups, choirs and ministries, to join the Parish Clergy along with the staff of the Parish Office to welcome Fr. Rikinson BANTOU.
Rest assured of both, our prayers and support!
May the Beloved Mother, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Our Patroness, keep you well under Her umbrella of Grace!
Rev, Fr. Reginald Jean-Mary, Administrator
