Announcement of New Bishop-Elect, Father Bede Nkamuke
Updated: Mar 24
From Bishop McGuire:
"I suppose everyone has heard the news of Fr. Nkamuke’s upcoming episcopal consecration. The church in Nigeria is certainly growing strong. Fr. Nkamuke and his two priests have some eighteen missions, a seminary, and a group of religious, among other things. However, in all the years since they first contacted Bp. Dolan (even before Fr. Nkamuke entered the seminary) the Faithful have not been able to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Besides, now there is also the fact that their seminarians cannot receive Tonsure or Minor Orders unless they were to come to the United States, a process which is becoming more and more difficult. As you can see, this consecration is very much needed. It is something which Bp. Dolan often spoke about and planned to do. We plan to follow through with this on Monday, May 1st. All are welcome to attend, of course."
