“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.
Epiphany of the Lord.
Sermonette (Reading 1. Is.60:1-6; Reading 2. Ephesians 3:2-3a,5-6; Gospel. Matt 2:1-12)
While there are still those seeking the truth through stars and shadows, Christ the Eternal Truth-King of the Universe now dwells permanently In our world manifesting Himself to every people and Shining His unitive Love into every heart. Let us follow Christ humbly as the Magi did and seek to flush out the heroic hatred and bitterness that may be hiding in our lives.
Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
