Our Annual Report

Friday June 24, 2022 marked the solemnity of the Secred Heart of Jesus and World day of prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. The Deputy Executive Secretary of Caritas Nigeria, Very Revd Fr. Peter Audu  celebrated the Holy Mass in Caritas Nigeria Imo state office with all staff in attendance.

In his reflection, Fr. Audu said, the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a symbol of God's tender love, compassion, and mercy and therefore, our devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus should lead us and help us to trust more in the love and forgiveness of God who desires our salvation and well-being.  He encourages all staff to work towards achieving the mission of Caritas in their daily official activities.
