About St. Michael's Parish, Agasha

St. Michael's parish Agasha started as an independent mission in 1998 and was carved out of St. Gregory's Parish, Ikpayongo. Father Samuel Malu (of blessed memory) was assigned to oversee the activities of the mission which had twenty outstations. Between 1998 and 2002, series of changes were made that saw Fathers Isaac Ajai and Samuel Malu exchange batons of leadership and finally Father Joseph Agbecha came on board as the priest in charge of the mission. He worked tirelessly and brought the mission to its present status of a parish on May 3, 2003 under the then Bishop of Makurdi Diocese, Most Revd Athanasius Usuh.

More stations were created and the number of outstations have increased to twenty four up to date.  The Parish Priest was Father Paul Nyinya. He was replaced by Fr. Paul Ande.
