On 29th September 2020, with just eight days away to the 83rd anniversary of our foundation, our Religious family gathered at the Immaculate Heart Complex, Nkpor-Agu, Idemili North LGA, Anambra State, Nigeria, to witness the realization of a long-held dream of owning a secretariat. The beauty of the secretariat was second to none that the Archbishop of Onitsha Most Rev. Valerian Okeke who presided at the Holy Mass and official opening ceremony classified it as an ‘International Secretariat!’ It is indeed an ultra-modern and state-of the-art secretariat with an extraordinarily impressive beauty both within and without.
Our Superior General, Rev. Mother Mary Claude Oguh IHM appreciated all our Sisters for their dedication towards the realization of that dream. She also thanked all who worked on the site and our Bursar General who ensured that our meager resources during this pandemic were adequately utilized.
After the cutting of the cake, all the Sisters present took on the stage for a dance of thanksgiving! It was indeed a beautiful sight to behold as the Sisters filled the stage with different dance steps. Our Superior General was not excluded in the dance, not even our elderly Sisters could resist coming joining the dance. It was indeed a dance of thanksgiving to God.
The Administrator of the Secretariat, Sr. Mary Amanda Nwagbo IHM in her vote of thanks appreciated the efforts of our Superior General and the Central Administrative team together with all who made our long held dream a reality!
Sr. Maria Chiagoziem Udebunu IHM
