Bishop Hiboro Edwardo , of Tambura Yambio diocese, recently made a trip to Ibba Girls Boarding School on the 8th and 9th October. Bishop Edwardo visited the school, ordained two local priests (Rev. Fr. Tombe and Rev. Fr. Babitimo) and confirmed the twenty-seven catholic girls who attend the school currently.
At the ordination function, several other guests attended, including the Minister of Education and the Minister of Information, representing the governor of Maridi State. The reverend Sisters from Solidarity also attended.
Many of these guests were able to interact with the students and were impressed with their level of religious education. Fr. Joe from Source-yubu in particular was able to talk to the girls and bless those who wanted it.
The Bishop and all the visitors expressed their gratitude to FIGS for their initiative in opening and funding a girls school that is transforming the lives of these girls.
An exciting day was enjoyed by all, including staff and students.
