28 MAR, 2019. God has blessed the Institute of the Sisters of St Louis with a new community in the city of Savè, Republic of Benin. Opened and blessed on February 19, 2019, the long-awaited community is part of the Nigeria Province, with Constance Dibie SSL and Theresa Peter Sheyin SSL having been missioned there from Nigeria.
The blessing ceremony involved both a blessing of the new missionaries, and a blessing of the house.
