Some Nice People

While we were in Abuja, the Vatican Embassy arranged for us to have a meeting with the Canadian High Commissioner for Nigeria in his offices at Abuja. The High Commissioner, Denis Kingsley gave us a warm welcome after we made it through the tight security guarding the High Commission and its staff here. We were kindly given information about travelling in Nigeria and they took information from us to make sure we were in contact if necessary.

After Mass on Sunday the priests of the parish took us out for dinner at a Chinese Restaurant in Abuja, here was one dish. As you can see when you order fish, you get the fish! It was a delicious meal with very good company.

And here is the good company Msgr. Jean-Sylvain from the Nunciature is on the left with Fr. Jorgi, the pastor and VG for the Archdiocese of Abuja next to him, then two of his Assistants and Fr. Callie.

When we returned to the Nunciature we met some of Fr. Callie's friends. All very nice people and very warm in their welcome to us.
