More about us

The first and the second batches of the Eighteen New Onitsha Archdiocesan Priests were ordained on the 14th and the 21st days of July, 2018 at the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, Onitsha.

2018 PRIESTLY ORDINATIONS AT THE CATHEDRAL BASILICA OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY, ONITSHA

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke presided over the first batch ordination of the Eleven candidates to the Catholic Priesthood on the 14th day of July, 2018, while the Auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha, Most Rev Denis Isizoh, the Bishop of Uromi Diocese, Most Rev Donatus Ogun, and a large number of Priests concelebrated.

The second batch ordination of the remaining Seven Candidates to the Catholic Priesthood on the 21st day of July, 2018, was presided over by the Auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha, Most Rev. Denis Isizoh with a large number of Priests in concelebration.

In his ordination homily titled, BEING FRIENDS OF JESUS, the Archbishop explained the mystery of priesthood which he said was a sacrament of Holy Orders which configures a newly ordained priest to the person of Christ.

This according to the Archbishop, empowers the eleven newly ordained priests to perform the functions of Christ in total self giving and self denial. The ordination of a priest he said, means that the new priest has left the world and detached from worldly acquisitions.

According to him, if a priest is not ready to be chaste and obedient, he will enter crisis.

The Archbishop finally called on the faithful to cooperate with the priests in their onerous tasks and avoid being an obstacle or temptation to them.

THIRTY-FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (YEAR B)

Love of God and of neighbour sums up the entire laws of God, says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He notes that true religion hinges on sincere love of God which ultimately has social consequences. There cannot be any true worship that does not involve agape love that moves one to act for the good of humanity. He invites us to continue to grow in the love of God and humanity while praying for the blessings of the most beneficent God on you. Amen!
