Our guest is Father Jules Omalanga, or Père Jules Omba, for short.  Père Jules came from the Congo, formerly the Belgian Congo where there are over 40 tribal languages and where French is used as a common, official language.  

Père Jules currently officiates at masses in two churches:  St. Bonifacius, where there is a French mass every Sunday at noon,  and All Saints.  Both churches are in Northeast Minneapolis.  St. Bonifacius is at 629 2nd St., near University Ave. and 6th St.  Père Jules invites all to the French mass and for refreshments after.
