East Nigeria Quinquennium Program

Mar 31, 2020 | East Nigeria, Ongoing Formation

New Owerri, Nigeria. From 23 to 26 March 2020, East Nigeria Province organized a quinquennium program for priests under five years of ordination at the Ladies of Mulumba Centre in New Owerri.

The Provincial Superior, Fr Simeon Nwobi, CMF, celebrated the opening Mass. He urged the participants of the program to strive to imitate Father Claret despite the challenges faced in the mission, in the various apostolates of the Province. He also intimated them on the projects and challenges in the Province and the Congregation. The participants had time to share their experiences.

Fr. Jude Anyanwu CMF, Novice Master and one of the facilitators of the program, dwelt on the General Chapter Document: Witnesses and Messengers of the Joy of the Gospel. Focusing on the theme “Listeners and Servants of the Word of God,” he explained the heritage of servants of the Word. He emphasized the right disposition in preparing the Word of God and preaching in the manner of Christ in the style of Father Claret, who were sensitive to their environment and the signs of the times.

The facilitators of the program, Frs. Kenneth Oguejiofor and Perpetus Igwe, CMFF, appreciated the participants for their disposition and collaboration during the spirit-filled encounter.

The program came to an end on 26 March with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist by Fr. Perpetus Igwe CMF.
