As part of his pastoral solicitude for the faithful God has entrusted to his watchful care and determined to promote the work of evangelization in Uromi community in particular and in Esanland in general, His Lordship, Most Rev. Donatus Ogun, the Bishop of Uromi Diocese on Saturday 15 September 2018 created St Ignatius Catholic Church, Efandion Uromi as an Independent Mass Centre. His Lordship equally assigned Rev. Fr Dr Augustine Akhogba to this Mass Centre as the pioneer Priest-in-Charge.
With this new Mass Centre, Uromi Diocese now has 42 Parishes/Independent Mass Centres. These are contributing immensely to the work of evangelization in Esanland.
With a grateful heart to God Almighty and to our visionary and pastorally-minded Chief Shepherd, we say AD MAIOREM DEI GLORIAM, To God be the Glory!
