“Welcome to Owerri Catholic Archdioceses .”
A warm welcome to Maria Assumpta Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of Owerri and the Mother Church for Roman Catholics in Owerri and environs. For over a hundred years countless Christians and visitors of every faith and none have crossed the threshold of this holy place, sensing the presence of God and filling it with prayer and contemplation.
30th Sunday Year C. Sermonette
The salvation of the poor of the earth comes from our Merciful God who as Supreme Upright Judge always protects the rights of the poor against the powerful unjust rich. Yet both the rich and the poor are sinners in need of God’s Mercy. Like St. Paul be active missionaries of Christ’s Mercy even in the face of opposition, assured of God’s abiding support. With the publican let us humbly ask of God’s mercy over our sins.
