This philanthropic and charitable gesture was demonstrated a few months ago when the former Edo State governor, who is also the immediate past APC national chairman, built a new church for the parish. The new church building, which was recently completed, was dedicated on April 5, 2021.
The bishop of Auchi Diocese, Most Reverend Dr. Gabriel Dunia, presided over the church dedication mass, which was concelebrated by Rev. Fr. Peter Igelewa and other priests present.
The event also included the dedication of the new Marian Grotto and the presentation of awards to worthy Parishioners. Adams Oshiomole received a package containing a lovely artistic drawing of himself.
On behalf of the Catholic faithful, the bishop of Auchi Diocese expressed his gratitude to the former governor and prayed for his blessing.
The pictures below were taken at the new church's dedication ceremony.
The church is really a fitting place for God's people to worship.
