Claret Media House Lagos Publishes Yoruba Bible

BÍBL MÍMỌ́ – Yoruba Jerusalem Bible. The Communications House of the Claretian Missionaries, Delegation West Nigeria was inaugurated barely five years ago. The outfit is already making giant strides amidst seasoned competing outfits and external debilitating challenges. But the media centre has stood shoulder high.

The great news is that for the first time in the history of the entire Nigerian Claretian Missionaries, a Claretian publishing outfit proudly co-publishes an entire Bible – and for the first time anywhere in the world, a Bible in Yoruba language. It is the BÍBL MÍMỌ́ (The Holy Bible, a Revised Yoruba Jerusalem Bible) by the indefatigable Bishop Emeritus of Ekiti Diocese, Most Revd Michael Patrick Olatunji Fágùn. He is the one we fondly call Bàbá Fágùn. Without doubt, it is the newest Bible in town.  

This project was started few years ago but the actual editorial preparations and redactions commenced precisely in 2021. It appears in two different beautiful colours.

It should be noted that Bishop Fágùn has been the major motivator extraordinaire behind the publication of the Claretian Bible Diary, Yoruba Edition. He has been a long-standing father to the Nigerian Claretian Missionaries. He it was who invited the Claretians in the late 90s to minister in different capacities in Ekiti Diocese and, more specifically, at the Chaplaincy of Blessed Cyprian Michael Iwene Tansi, Ado-Ekiti.

With the delivery of the initial copies, our joy of realising part of our dreams as a formidable publishing house knows no bounds.

Thanks also to the Claret Publishing Group (CPG) – whose logo proudly adorns the covers of the Bible – for supportive encouragements.

Claret! – You are a pilgrim. You are a sower!
