More about us

The first batch of Eleven New Priests were ordained this day, 14th day of July, 2018 at the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, Onitsha.

 

2018 PRIESTLY ORDINATION AT THE BASILICA OF THE HOLY TRINITY, ONITSHA

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke presided over the ordination of Eleven candidates to the Catholic Priesthood, 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.

In a 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.
