About St. Rita's Mission, Agber

St. Rita's Mission Agber started in 2011 under a woman Catechist Anna Sue. Father Titus Imojime who was parish priest of St. Joseph's Parish, Nyiman nurtured it. In 2012 and 2013,  Father Moses Iorapuu who later became the Parish Priest of St. Joseph Nyiman made proper arrangement for a priest's residence and advised the Bishop to inaugurate it as an Independent Mission. This request was granted immediately and the Bishop announced an independent mission on chrism mass of March 28, 2015. And in September same year, he appointed Father Anthony Maria Akaatenger, as the first priest of the Mission. The Mission now has Father Philip Gbishe as the priest-in-charge.
