Closing prayer to recite throughout the jubilee year:

Angèle Ngo Ngok, CND

Almighty and everlasting God, we give you thanks

for the gift of life, for Marguerite Bourgeoys’s vocation,

and for the spiritual heritage she bequeathed to us 400 years go.

We glorify your Name and we recognize your active presence

in the works of her daughters and sons throughout the world.


Today, the charism and spirituality of this woman,

who gave new spirit to the Church and to society,

continue to inspire the men and women of our time.

The flame received set another group of women on their way

on African roads on Cameroonian soil and continues to touch people today.


We want to thank you, faithful God, good and merciful,

who, through your son Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, nourished and inspired,

stimulated and made daring the women impassioned by the Gospel

to establish the Congregation of Notre-Dame in Cameroon 50 years ago.


Enriched by this great work, we pray to you, Lord,

through the intercession of Notre-Dame-des-Apôtres, patron saint of Cameroon

and of Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys, our foundress,

to grant us throughout this jubilee year

the grace of reconciliation and of mercy, of love and of unity.

May we remain open to our sisters and brothers

May we be creative and innovative according to the Word.


In the example of the first Christian community,

may we show ourselves to be joyful witnesses to the Good News,

May the Church and its children find, once again, reason to hope,

faith despite headwinds, and the hope of entering one day into your eternal bliss

and thus praising in the choir of angels the beauty of your Name... Amen!


Notre-Dame des Apôtres, pray for us!

Sainte Marguerite Bourgeoys, intercede for us!
