all the days of my life.



The Eucharist congress which took place at mater dei cathedral umuahia, Lead by the Diocesan Administrator, Most Rev. Michael Kalu Ukpong, the faithful who despite the rain converged at the Cathedral for a holy mass to commence the celebration, later processed to the Marian Shrine to conclude with rosary and benediction.


In his homily, the Diocesan Administrator stressed the need for people to live out what they profess.


Bishop Ukpong who spoke on the theme, " Becoming the eucharist we celebrate" challenged all to live the life of peace, love and thanksgiving; showing good examples to people rather than bearing grudges and hate.


He enumerated some benefits derivable from adoring Jesus Christ in the holy eucharist and encourage all to remain committed to their responsibilities and dutifully serve God in their respective calling.
