“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.
24th Sunday Year C. Sermonette
We humans are all prone to sin. When we remain in sin, stubborn and unrepentant we make ourselves miserable. When we truly repent God readily forgives our sins and preserves us in virtue. In the lost and found sheep and coin we see the passion of God for every sinner. In the special feast for the returnee prodigal son we taste God’s lavish mercy for us in Christ.
