“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.

Sermonette (FIRST READING: Zeph 2:3; 3:12-13 SECOND READING: 1 Cor 1:26- 31 GOSPEL: MK 5:1-20)
We all start life as helpless little babies in and out of our mother’s womb. But once we begin to feel that we are grown up enough pride begins to rear its selfish and defiant head in us. Yet with all His fullness as God Jesus humbles himself unto shame in order to save us all. As we humbly submit our lives totally to God in Christ we shall be blessed abundantly.
Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
