“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.

— Archbishop Obinna

FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT  YEAR B

1st Reading: Gen 9:8-15; 2nd Reading:1 Peter 3:18-22; Gospel: MK 1:12-15

Lent-a favorable season of repentance, confession, prayer and charity-challenges us all to seek uprightness like Noah in the midst of the corruption and sin around us. While the rainbow-covenant assured Noah of God’s decision never again to destroy all flesh with water, the Resurrection-Covenant of Christ in heaven now guarantees our eternal salvation. In and with Christ let us discipline ourselves this Lent on toward heaven.

Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
