Catholic Diocese of Makurdi


Diocese Ready For Bishop

Preparations are almost ready, as Makurdi Catholic diocese warms up for the silver priestly anniversary of his Lordship Wilfred Anagbe, CMF, Bishop of the diocese. The team responsible for this event, has dusted up plans to unveil the Bishop's Pet Project, a school for children with special needs. According to the chair of the Central Planning Committee, Father Theophilus Hwande, “This is no ordinary anniversary, the event is to unveil what motivates Anagbe: ‘service to Christ and His brethren,’ The life of the bishop is all about service, and he has always hinted in private discussions that the diocese must champion the cause of children with special needs as part of a holistic pastoral care.” According to the Diocese Education Director, Father Terungwa Tor, the diocesan school for children with Special Needs is to complement government efforts at customized education to a neglected section of the population in line with the National Policy on Education.  The School will meet the needs of persons with special needs that conventional and general education programs cannot cater to.  The school will be both Basic Education and Secondary School.

                The publicity and communication chairman, Father Moses Iorapuu explained further that these special needs include, persons living with Albinism, those with visual impairment, physical and health impairment, hearing impairment, emotional and behavioural disorders, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, the gifted and talented and intellectually challenged.  According to him, the school will be a giant leap for mankind in this part of the world, where every challenge is attributed to the devil or satanic forces.

                Meanwhile, the state governor, Samuel Ortom has ordered the construction of two classroom apartments as part of his contribution to a noble humanitarian project that will benefit all citizens of the state.

                All Catholics faithful and their priests are contributing to this trail-blazing project.

                The publicity Chairman also revealed other details of the anniversary celebration as follows: November 6, 2019, the Bishop will have lunch with those who are internally displaced and prayers will be offered in all churches for the success of the event on November 7, 2019.  There will be fundraising dinner at the pastoral Centre and on November 8, 2019, a thanksgiving Mass at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cathedral, Makurdi by 10.00am.  Let us join the Bishop in making those considered "Nobody" "Somebody".  Those willing to send goodwill messages can contact the Directorate of Social Communications or Catholic Star Newspaper.
