Parish priest of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Ojota, Lagos, Rev. Fr. John Okoro has charged members of the Lagos Archdiocesan Catholic Men Organization (LACMO) to be good ambassadors of Christ.
Fr.Okoro made this charge while welcoming members of the LACMO 2019 Convention Organizing Committee during their joint meeting with deanery coordinators and parish chairmen in the parish on Satursday.
“Be Good ambassadors of Christ, be good ambassadors of St Joseph your patron saint. Sometimes we tend to deviate from those values that promote the church, but I know that with little advice from one another we can make a head way. I want to thank you for doing a good job and I pray that God will continue to bless you,” he said.
“Be good ambassadors in loving your wives, as St Joseph loved his wife,and also his foster son Jesus. You should be good ambassadors in loving your children also. I pray that the lord will bless you in your works, your businesses and in all your endeavours, through Christ our lord,” he went further to say. President of LACMO, Mr. John Aigbokhaode had earlier inaugurated the committee.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
