Meet a La Salette
I’m Clemente Félix Mário, born in the village of Kalomemba, municipality of Ganda, Benguela Province, in Angola, Africa. I made my Perpetual Profession in January 2006, with ordination to the Priesthood on September 17, 2006. This was in the same year as the Jubilee of 60 years of La Salette presence in Angola. After my ordination, I was sent to Namíbia, a neighboring country south of Angola. I was there for eleven years as a Missionary. It was not easy, because it was always challenging to encounter different people, cultures, and languages.
I celebrate my sixteenth Priesthood Anniversary and life in the United States since 2018, I would say that I’m fulfilling my dream of being a missionary and enjoying friendship, brotherhood, as well as community life. I’m an Associate Pastor at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Smyrna, Georgia. This is a multicultural parish whereby I have the opportunity to learn Spanish and improve my English.
So wherever you are, I would invite you to have an incredible encounter with Jesus through Mary’s
La Salette Spirituality: being reconciled with ourselves, others, and God. And if you feel a particular call, I invite you to join us as La Salette Missionaries, reconcilers for the world.
Long Live La Salette!
