It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.



With great delight and gratitude to God, we announce that one of our students, Rev. Jude C. Akachukwu, has won the first-place award in the 2nd Edition of the Scripture and Theology Essay Competition organized by Wyclif College, Toronto, Canada.

The 2022 edition of this essay competition focused on the theme Theophany: Theological Implication of God’s Manifestation in Scripture. Rev. Akachukwu, a deacon ordained for the Catholic Diocese of Awgu and final year theology student of the Institute, presented a well-researched paper titled “Theophany as Christophany: Core Implication of Early Christian Theology of Scriptural Theophany and its Implication for Modern Biblical Studies.” Among entries from participants from different institutions around the world, Rev. Akachukwu’s essay was adjudged best in the undergraduate category of the competition because of its originality, scholarly presentation, and research depth.

Members of the Faculty and Management of the Institute are, therefore, proud of this academic feat as it goes to demonstrate the quality of teaching, learning, and research engagement in the Institute. The Institute remains committed to the holistic formation of its students to the glory of God and for the good of the Church.

Congratulations Rev. Jude Akachukwu! Congratulations Most Rev. Dr. John Okoye of the Catholic Diocese of Awgu!! And Congratulations to Faculty members and the Management of the Institute!!!

A Three-Day Workshop for Candidates for Diaconate and Priestly Ordinations

Date: 2019-02-19 - 2019-02-22

Priestly Life and Ministry (PLM) workshop is a programme that draws its inspiration from the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Saint John Paul II, Pastores Dabo Vobis, a document that speaks to the question of the formation of priests in our contemporary context. Observing the interconnectedness of the four areas of priestly formation, namely human formation (the basis of all priestly formation), spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral formations, John Paul II exhorts agents of priestly formation and the candidates for priestly ministry especially to offer “heartfelt cooperation to this work of formation” (no. 69).
