Parish Announcement – 7th August, 2022


  1. MASS TIME: Due to the state of insecurity in the country and after due consultation, we wish to announce that henceforth our 6am Sunday mass at the Parish and the Event Center will now begin at “6:15am”. All other masses remain at the same time. Thanks for your understanding.
  1. PARISH SECURITY UNIT TIPS: In line with the growing rate of insecurity in our nation, let us take note of the following:

i. Parishioners who come to church with their vehicles, especially on Sundays are hereby requested to comply with the directives from the parish traffic warden when they want to park their vehicles. This is to ensure orderliness and safety of the vehicles.

ii. Vehicles during weddings should drop off couples inside the compound and park outside and their booths must be thoroughly searched before entry in the compound.

iii. Parishioners should not carry big bags to the Church premises. All bags are to be thoroughly searched at the entrance before entering the church. And so, if you must come with a bag(s) it should be transparent.

iv. Parishioners are to submit themselves for scanning and searching by the security personnel at the Church gates.

v. Everyone must be security conscious and alert; parishioners should cooperate with the security personnel in the church and should always report any suspicious move or activity within the church premises to them.

vi. As much as possible do not display very flashy and expensive bags and items within the church premises or inside parked vehicles as they could attract criminals.

vii. Do not leave any of your valuables on your seat while going to the altar or during offertory.

viii. Parishioners should endeavor to install security devices in their vehicles in order to forestall any form of theft or vandalization.

ix. Be security conscious and be your brother’s & sister’s keeper.

Kindly cooperate with the security personnel(s) of the parish accordingly. May the Lord protect us from every evil. Amen.
