The meeting plenary was chaired by the Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Onitsha and Metropolitan of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province, Most Rev Valerian Okeke.
The event brought together priests within the Onitsha Archdiocese to “give thanks to God for the many blessings received in the previous year we also thank him for the new year and the promises that it holds”.
