Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Emma Elekwa, Awka

The Nnewi Catholic Dio­cese has or­dained 19 priests with a charge to be shin­ing light re­flect­ing the life of Christ at all times.

In his homily at the or­di­na­tion mass held at St John Cross, Catholic Church, Uru­aguNnewi, Anam­bra State, the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi, Most Rev Hil­lary Okeke, said one could only be­come a priest by the spe­cial grace of God and not by might or any other con­sid­er­a­tion.

Bishop Okeke who stressed the need for the or­dained priests to be holy and em­brace the Holy Spirit in their ser­vice and also live a Christ-like life, said they should avoid a sit­u­a­tion where earthly things would im­pact their call­ings.
