“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 READING: Is 50:4-7     SECOND READING: Phil 2:6-11      GOSPEL: Mt 26:14-27 or Mt 27: 11-54

Jesus the Eternal Son of God resurrects,  breaks the iron gate of death and lights up the world.  As Word Almighty He knew creates us. Baptism and  Confirmation draw us into His Risen Body which  now feeds and ever unites us to Him.  This night we renew our pass over with Christ to New Life.   We wake to Peter and Mary Magdalene urging us to proclaim that Christ is risen ever fixing our gaze on heaven with converted Paul. Happy Easter!   Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
