LIFE IS SACRED STOP THE KILLINGS!
Because of the Barberic killing of human beings in Nigeria, and erosion of the perception of life as sacred and in union with the Diocese of Makurdi, we want to express our deepest displeasure over the ugly happenings in our country and pray for the nation.

CONVENER: His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan.

THEME: PEACEFUL MARCH AND PRAYER FOR NIGERIA

There will be Mass, Rosary procession, address to local and international media and benediction.

DATE: Tuesday 22nd May 2018.

STARTING POINT: National Christian Centre (Ecumenical Centre).

TIME: 10am.

TERMINATION POINT: Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Pro-Cathedral, Garki.

DRESS CODE: Priests will all be in Cassock, others will come in their Parish or group uniforms or black attire. Please wear comfortable shoes or sandals. Priests should also take note that white is the colour of vestment for mass.  

INVITATION: We invite others who are not of the Catholic Faith to also join us. Let us make it a joint project. We must all peacefully fight for a better Nigeria.

NOTE: Trouble makers should please keep-off. I want this march and prayer to be peaceful from the beginning to the end and to send a powerful message to the Government of our country and the rest of the world for positive change.

Signed:

+John Cardinal Onaiyekan
