About St. Francis Xavier Parish, Agagbe

Created in 1988, St. Francis Xavier's Agagbe Parish was carved out of St. Theresa's Parish, Naka, with a missionary, Father James Hunter as the pioneer parish priest. The parish started with 5 zones and 55 outstations.

St. Augustine's Adaka mission was later carved out of the parish leaving Agagbe with 43 stations. The parish presently has a population of 3,000 people.

Incessant Fulani attacks have held back rapid growth of the parish. Churches neatly built and roofed are five in number. The parish has a Nursery/Primary and a Secondary School.  The current parish priest is Father Titus Imojime, who succeeded  Father James Utav.
