In a post shared on their fb page on Sunday, 3rd July, 2022, the parish priest thanked all who made the project which was created from the message of Archbishop Valerian Okeke, who visited the parish on 25th July 2021, titled “We are all stewards of Creation”* This post reads;
The Lord provides for us through others persons. In the Bible, a man came from Baal-shalishah, bringing the man of God (Elisha) bread of the first fruits, twenty loaves of barley, and fresh ears of grain. Elisha used it to feed the people, 2kings 4:42~44.
In the Gospel according to Matthew 14:17-18,20; Jesus fed the four thousand persons with seven loaves and a few small fish. Equally, in the Gospel of John 6:9, the Word narrates the feeding of the five thousand persons with five barley loaves and two fish; provided by a little boy. All these Miracles and many more, underscores the Providing hands of God of Creation.
Archbishop Valerian Maduka Okeke said during his pastoral visit to SHP ODOAKPU on the 25th July, 2021, that the God of Providence delight in providing for His Children from among them. Hence, We are all stewards of Creation.
In compliance with this admonition,
