Trade Education Centre for Orogwe

As part of the fall-outs of the decisions taken at the 3rd Session of the 20th Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Owerri, a Trade Education Center is to be set up at the premises of St. Mark’s Church, Orogwe.
The Centre, when operational, will give holistic training and skills acquisition opportunities, as well as help to cub the teeming unemployment situation among the youths in the Diocese and beyond.
The Synod, also endorsed the proposal to establish a Home Nursing Care Scheme, whereby the aged and the weak in the Diocese could be given first aid treatment or have their daily/routine drugs administered on them, particularly those of them who are now staying alone in their respective homes, and who have nobody to take proper care of them on daily basis.
In his closing remarks, the  Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. C.C. Okorocha Ph.D, who is also the President of the Synod, expressed delight at the turn-out of the delegates at this session of the Synod, saying that it recorded the highest number of attendants in recent years .
He urged the delegates to ensure that they guard the gospel in those tiny areas of life, and to try and reconcile with their brethren in any areas of disagreement because, according to him, the coming of the Lord is near.
The highlights of the one-day synod included the announcement of the Synod Archdeaconry Competition.
The CATOL Archdeaconry clinched the first position, followed by the Christ’s Church Archdeaconry, which came second, as the Aladinma Archdeaconry took the third position.
For the Clean and Beauty Competition, the first position went to the St. Peter’s (Ang.) Church, Ikenegbu, Owerri, while Nazareth Church, Ohohia-Mbieri and St. Paul’s Church, Umuguma, picked the second and third positions respectively.
