On 25th January, the feast of the Conversion of St Paul, Bros. Paschal Mbah Chinedu and Desmond Alfred Shinshima, were ordained deacons in the community chapel at Ibadan by Most Rev. Gabriel Leke Abegunrin, the Archbishop of Ibadan. In his homily the Archbishop reminded the ordinand: “God has chosen you for a reason and you are to serve him without condition”. Urging them further he said: “Serve properly, preach by example and be men of prayer”. And since it was the feast of the Conversion of St Paul, the Archbishop challenged them to: “be enthusiastic like St Paul and be missionaries in our land”.

The ceremony witnessed the presence of many Priests, Nuns, friends and relatives, members of the worshipping community, representatives from Holy Innocence Parish Enugu and staff of the book centre. We wish both Rev. Paschal and Rev. Desmond a fruitful and meaningful service as they take up their liturgical ministries as deacons.
