The Association of Holy Childhood Inaugurated
Date: 17 Apr 2019
The association of Holy Childhood has been inaugurated at St. John the Baptist Catholic Cathedral in Gboko by Most Rev. Williams Amove Ayenya, the Catholic Bishop of Gboko diocese recently.
In his homily, he said that the scripture tell us about the nature of God. He said that God continues to walk with the people of Israel, today he is still walking with us as his children. He further said that God is engaged in business with his people who are sinners.Among his people, there is nobody who can claim that they have never sinned before.
The story of the prodigal son is a lesson for each one to learn something new. God is merciful and forgives us our sins. As Christians too we need to learn to forgive each other. God is waiting for us to respond and to return to him because He continues to lavish his love and mercy upon us.
He added that the Roman Catholic Church pays attention to every sector of the church. There is room for children and missionary work too. The Association of Holy Childhood caters for members between the ages three to fourteen, they pray together and support other children in missionary activities.
Finally, the Bishop acknowledged the Association of the Holy Childhood is now officially inaugurated in our parish. We are challenged to help and support in animating the work of the Association.
