“Welcome to Owerri Catholic Archdiocese.”

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.

1st Reading: Jer.38:4-8-10; 2nd Reading: Heb. 12:1-4; Gospel: Lk. 12:49-53

Genuine religious persons like Jeremiah  who speak the truth often become hated by rulers who exploit divisions in society to deal with them as enemies. These put all their trust in God. With the final division in the world triggered by Jesus’ saving presence every human must take a stand. If we truly stand with Christ, we must share the shame of Jesus’ Cross so as to share His Eternal Joy. + Anthony J.V. Obinna, (Archbishop Emeritus of Owerri Archdiocese).
