200 candidates where confirmed this day and blessed by the Bishop laying his hands over them with the Priests and praying with for; Spirit of wisdom, understanding, Spirit of right judgement, courage and Spirit of knowledge. The candidates were then gifted each with books that have small texts from the Holy Bible.
Not only were they grateful for the Bishop’s coming to their Parish, they too made it an official day to formally welcome the Sisters of Sacred Heart( Carbrini Sisters ) as permanent residents of their Parish so they can easily provide services to the refugees and the Christians of Dzaipi.
In the speech which was made by the Chairman Organizing Committee, they made several requests to the Bishop one of which was to make Oriangwa Chapel a Parish since Dzaipi Parish is growing bigger in population. They informed him that they have five Chapels under construction all with help from the Christians and reported that more funding was needed to finish them up.
