Most Rev. Denis Chidi Isizoh presided over the Mass. He celebrated with other Religious Priests who were present.
Bishop Denis reminded all that Christ is the light of the Nations. The Light of Christ for a Christian is the one that gives light beyond a point but illumines everyone around. We Christians must show this light wherever we find ourselves: light of truth, honesty and integrity.
He appreciated all the Religious in the Archdiocese for their contribution whatsoever towards the work of Evangelization in the Church.
Different Consecrated persons of various Institutes present, who were visibly joyful, participated fully at the Mass, taking up different functions. The shared joy continued after Mass with each Institute taking a group photograph with the Prelate.
The Religious had a time for themselves at the Basilica Hall where they entertained themselves, having time too for personal interactions.
Major Superiors and Provincials of various Institutes living within the Onitsha Archdiocese attended the occasion. The turnout of members of Religious Institutes for the celebration was impressive.
