On Thursday, 20 December 2018, the Bishop of Uromi Diocese, Most Rev. Donatus Ogun was at Ebudin to bless the New Convent of the Vocationist Sisters. The building of the magnificent Convent was begun by the pioneer Bishop of Uromi Diocese, Most Rev. Augustine Akubeze. Despite economic challenges, the incumbent Bishop, upon his assumption of office as Bishop of Uromi Diocese ensued that it was completed in due time.
At their arrival in Ebudin community on the 28th of July 2009, the Sisters were offered shelter at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Ikhiduanumen. This family has been very supportive to the apostolate of the Vocationist Sisters. In addition to building the first block of classrooms of St. Patrick Nursery/Primary School that the Sisters run, they equally provided the first school bus as well as provide a power generating set which they fuelled for over a period of one year. The Sisters and the Bishop appreciate this family for their immense contributions to the work of evangelization in the Diocese. May God bless and reward them and all our Diocesan benefactors. Amen
