About St. Augustine's Parish, Demekpe

St. Augustine's Parish Demekpe began as an outstation under Holy Ghost Parish Makurdi on August 5, 1994. On  February 2, 2003 the Church was pronounced a mission by the then Bishop of Makurdi Diocese Most Revd Athanasius Atule Usuh, with the posting of  Father Bernard Asogo as the Priest-in-Charge with St. Joseph's Catholic Church Iniongun and St. Gabriel's Church Akpam ( 8th Nov, 2008) as outstations.

On May 24, 2009, St. Augustine's Mission was raised to the status of a parish and Father Isaiah Utsuah came in as the parish priest. In 2013, St. Joseph's Church Iniongun was carved out of the parish to be an independent mission with St. Gabriel's Akpam as an outstation.

St. Augustine's Demekpe today exists without an outstation. The parish now has two priests: Father Solomon Ukeyima  as parish priest  and John Abagi as Catechist. The Church was dedicated by Bishop Willfred Anagbe, Cmf on November 4, 2018.
