INTERVIEW WITH FR. BENARD ODHIAMBO, A.A. PDF Print E-mail

FR. BENARD ODHIAMBO, A.A.Interviewer – Would you share a bit about your background: family, childhood, early education etc.?

Fr. Benard – I was born in 1977 into a very strong Catholic family in Kenya and was the third of six boys. There were four other boys who died at a very young age. Immediately after my First Holy Communion, I became an altar boy and during this time I was influenced by the sisters who were residing and working in the parish. From a young age, I had been interested in the priesthood. I was also fortunate enough to attend a Catholic high school.

- Where/how did your Assumptionist roots begin? Did anyone in particular have a significant impact on your life?

- Initially, it was my family, parish and the Franciscan Sisters of St. Anna who influenced my faith and encouraged a devotion to Mary and the Rosary. They wholeheartedly supported my interest in priesthood.  At 19 years of age, I obtained a booklet on all congregations and attended an ‘Come and See’ weekend in Nairobi where I met Fr. Richard Brunelle, A.A.  Twelve of us attended but only two of us were invited to begin the discernment process. Up until that time I did not know the difference between diocesan priesthood and those belonging to religious congregations.

Around 200 young people from Orizaba, Córdoba and Mexico City participated with enthusiasm and joy in their first camp with Jesus . It is because according to them, it was a wonderful experience that they will never forget. This is the main Assumptionist youth activity in Mexico that takes place every year to celebrate one more anniversary of the passage to the full life of our founder, Fr. Emmanuel D'Alzon.

We met with the intention of deepening the life and work of our founder, his time and his challenges, his spirituality and his thoughts. But also, in this meeting, we shared the experiences lived in this life of being Christians from the intuitions of our founder.

JASTER OVERCAME CHALLENGES TO FEEL AT HOME PDF Print E-mail

Veronika Jaster

The article was first reported by The Harbinger

By Eli Cohen-Gordon

Missing milestones such as prom, getting her driver’s license and a sweet seventeen was a small price to pay for senior Veronika Jaster in order to spend her junior year studying abroad in France, where she dove headfirst into a foreign culture to get a greater glimpse of the world.

Jaster has been bilingual her whole life. With her parents being first generation Polish immigrants, she learned Polish and English at the same time and started taking French in seventh grade.

“I don’t remember a time when I only spoke one language,” Jaster said.

After going to Paris on the bi-annual trip organized by French teacher Lauren Osepchuk as a freshman, Jaster knew she wanted to return to France to study.

“That experience was my eureka moment,” Jaster said.
