Nnewi Anglican Diocese Ordains 6 Priests, 9 Deacons, Others

The Bishop of Nnewi Diocese, Rt.Rev. Prof. Godwin Okpale has ordained six Priests, nine Deacons, four Canons and installed two Archdeacons to work in the Diocese at the Basilica of Saint Peters, Okija.

The ordination attracted the clergy ,parishioners, personalities from all walks of life, including the former Governor of Anambra State, Dame Virgy Etiaba.

Rev. Canon Chukwuma in a sermon titled "There was a man sent by God" said Priests are messengers of God sent to bear witness for HIM, preach the gospel of salvation and prepare christians for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Rev. Canon Chukwuma advised the congregation not to judge their Priests, rather they should advise, love, encourage, care and receive them, stressing that no ordination is a mistake and it is an error to fight a man commissioned by God to bless the people.

The Priest who noted that Priests are bound to err as humans, urged them to be holy, prayerful, bold and courageous in the discharge of their priestly duties.

Bishop Okpala charged the Deacons, Canons and Priests to love and serve the people among whom they will work, to care for both the young and old and remain prayerful.
Highpoints include oath taking, ordination of the candidates and installation of Archdeacons.
