Archdiocesan Get-together29 Dec 2015, by Events in
Most times, priests and religious are seen as supper human, far removed from ordinary life. Yet, they are human, taken from among humans. Though it is very true that by their priestly ordination and religious consecration, they are set apart, they are still in the world but not of the world.
As human beings like everyone else, the Priests and religious of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos came together today (29 December 2015) to celebrate with their Archbishop, Most Rev. Dr. Alfred Adewale Martins. This time, not the Chrism Mass but Christmas and end-of-year party. The priests and religious celebrate; they came from different parts of the Archdiocese to appreciate, celebrate God and each other. It was a memorable get-together, with a lot to eat and drink. There were beautiful presentations from comedians, jokes from clergy, and other entertainment that kept the gathering alive.
Some senior clergy and religious were specially celebrated as they mark different anniversaries. They danced to others’ admiration, and the exchange of gifts among the participants added color to the event.
We thank the Archbishop and the Archbishop Emeritus, Cardinal Anthony Okogie, for their presence. May God continue to keep the Church as one for his glory. Amen.
