Looking Back

August 14th marked the celebration of Anniversaries here in the Province of Tanzania. Nine celebrated 25 years of Spiritan life, Renatus Assenga 25 years of priesthood, and 50 years of priesthood for me. Many Spiritans, relatives and friends gathered for the celebration at our Spiritan Center near Arusha. I traveled with Maasai from Olbalbal for the feast.A Toast

  1. Congratulations on 50 years of education and success. Here’s to many more!

  2. Hello Ned -Happy and Congrats on your 50 years of great service! Your love commitment,dedication has truly inspired and transformed the lives of the Maasai community. Prior, the Maasai use to take a back seat when it comes to education,i am certain the story has changed!

  3. I was 17 when you were ordained and I still remember that day. Congratulation. Our parish priest is celebrating his 25 year and Eileen and I are going to Italy to help celebrate. Enjoy

  4. Dear Ned,
    Congratulations on your golden priesthood. As the parents of Yadira & Lars we have felt your great affection for the Maasai people and how important your work is for them.
    Although it is a drop in the ocean we made a donation on your account, May God bless you!

  5. Hi Ned, Congratulations on your 50th anniversary to the priesthood. I remember you from my time spent at Cornwells.

    May God continue to bless you and your work.
