Umuneke Ngor celebrates 100 years of Christianity

Hundred years of the advent of Christianity in Unueneke Ngor was marked at St Peter’s (Ang) Church, Umuneke, Ngor parish, Ngor-Okpala local government of Imo State.
In his charge at the occasion the Bishop of Egbu, Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Okorafor, observed that significant projects and development have eluded Ngor-Okpala clan because of the people’s indifferent attitude.
Urging the people to arouse a new spirit in themselves, he noted that the occasion being celebrated was owing to the enthusiasm of their forebear through whose efforts the church was planted 100 years ago.
The bishop then called on the congregation to give freely to God assuring them that He would turn their hopeless situation into affluence as he challenged the church members both at home and abroad to ensure the early completion of the church auditorium and the vicarage.
Earlier in his sermon, the vicar of Amorie Ogbeke parish, Rev. Canon Daniel Emuka, expressed delight that the gospel of delight was 100 years old in the area and poured encomium on their fore fathers for establishing the church in their area.
He also urged members of the congregation to do all in their power to complete the church projects as such projects have been completed in similar churches in the area, adding that God would reward then accordingly.
The event attracted indigenous priests from the area including Ven. Anthony Ekeson, Rev. Canon Simon Okorafor, Rev. Nkem Obasi, Rev. Benjamin Ugorji, Ebenezar Okere.
The traditional ruler of Ngor, Eze Engr. Fred Nwachukwu and his Ugoeze, among others, were also present.
