As Claretian Missionaries of Nigeria hand over Msgr Nwobi to Ahiara Clergy and Faithful a joyous mammoth Crowd welcome the Auxiliary Bishop-Elect.

Day 1: Sunday, December 17, 2023, Boundary (Heartland, Owerri), 3:00pm: In a brief, but of deeply traditio-cultural significance, re-echoing the African Traditional Cultural practice, where parents ceremonially handover their daughters to prospective grooms, the Claretian Missionaries of Nigeria, handed over Msgr Simeon Okezuo Nwobi, CMF to the good people of Mbaise to be consecrated the Auxiliary Bishop of Ahiara Diocese this Tuesday, December 19, 2023.

This event, which took place at the boundary between Owerri Capital Territory and the Mbaise nation, delineating also the ecclesiastical borders between Owerri Archdiocese and Ahiara Diocese, was witnessed by a joyous mammoth crowd composed of Priests, Religious and faithful mainly of Ahiara Diocese.  

There were brief remarks by the Claretians and the Pastoral Council Chairman of Ahiara offering meaningful symbolic words to the occasion.

Immediately after, the Auxiliary Bishop-Elect and his entourage proceeded in a solemn motorcade, amidst singing and dancing, waving of the Vatican colourful flags interrupted harmoniously by the traditional sounds of holy excitement, typical of the people and comparable to a festive national carnival, to the Maria Mater Ecclesiae Cathedral, Ahiara for the Benediction led by the Bishop-to-be himself.
