Inauguration of the Lubumbashi Book Center

 On 5 February 2015, the Daughters of St. Paul of Lubumbashi celebrated the opening of the FSP Centenary Year with the inauguration of their new book center. The event was attended by both ecclesial and political dignitaries, members of the Pauline Family, friends, priests, religious and laity.
 
Everyone was surprised and delighted to see how modern and functional the new center is–an elegant locale, stocked with excellent material that can be easily found thanks to the well-organized floor plan.
 
The new center is truly a modern “pulpit” from which to foster the human and spiritual formation of the people and a reference point for everyone seeking to come to a better grasp of the Faith through books and audiovisuals. The golden thread running through the inauguration ceremony was Fr. Alberione’s declaration: “Our book centers are centers of apostolate….
They are not stores but places that serve the Word, not businesses but places from which the light and love of Christ can shine. The Pauline book center is God’s publishing house.”
 
It is our sincere hope that the people of Lubumbashi and its outlying zones will find in our new FSP center the bread they need to nourish their minds and enlighten their hearts.
