20 Years of Kebbi Diocese Celebrations

We’ve had word from Kebbi to report that their 2016 Synod and all their celebrations around the 20-year anniversary of their diocese and the dedication of their new cathedral as the Cathedral Church of St James all went peacefully and joyously well. The events were well attended by their members as well as friends from other dioceses, and an unprecedented preferment of eleven priests also took place; amongst them our friend Victor Oluwatosin being made a Venerable (Archdeacon).
The pictures are all courtesy of Victor and show Archbishop Edmund Akanya and his family, his bishop friends, diocesan priests and their colourful congregation.
