“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.

Today’s Nigeria including Imo State is a fierce war zone full of desperate seekers for political power and the easy wealth associated with it. Seeking to be upright or to give moral direction in such a situation can only attract attacks and persecution from the violent and the deadly. If peace will ever come onto our land inordinate ambition must be checked and self-centred prayers stopped. May heavenly prayers of peace prevail among us. +  Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna.
