Knights have been advised to brace up with the challenges of their initiation into the Order as soldiers of Christ, especially in the area of supporting the church’s mission activities.
The call was made by Rev. Fr. Wisdom Ofurum during the 2019 House Retreat of the Knights of St. Mulumba Nigeria, Seat of Wisdom Sub-Council Owerri, held at the Ladies of St. Mulumba Women and Youth Empowerment Centre Owerri (WAYECO), October 18-20.
The priest who stood in for the chaplain of the sub-council, Rev. Fr. Dr. Innocent Osuagwu, said that knights should be visible in their parishes through their actions especially in the area of assisting parish priests in evangelization work.
The priest observed that in some parishes, knights are not always in good terms with their parish priests and advised that both should work together to achieve a common goal.
He further advised knights to always find subtle ways of getting close to their parish priests rather than confronting them.
The highlights of the retreat were, lecture, penitential service, use of the breviary, Mass, Stations of the Cross and Adoration.
The Retreat was well attended by members of the sub-council.
In a vote of thanks, the Worthy Grand Knight, Bro. Anthony Uroegbulam thanked the Retreat preacher for finding time to be with them and expressed the sub-council’s satisfaction with the way and manner he handled the programme and promised that they will put into practice lessons of the Retreat.

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.
