“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.
2nd Sunday of Advent Year A.
Our Lord Jesus Christ fulfils the Isaiah prophecy of global peace beyond every barrier. Gentle in disposition and compassionate in drawing all creatures into peaceful communion Christ remains our upright and just judge. As He straightens us out by his correcting presence let us extend our love and care to every one especially the unloved and the neglected.
Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
