Recall that some protesting youths suspected to be members of the Adoration Ministries, Enugu had on Wednesday invaded the Bishop’s official residence and the Holy Ghost Cathedral beside Ogbette Main Market, Enugu.
Onaga said that the protesters violently broke into the diocesan cathedral and desecrated the holy altar of sacrifice.
“Over and above this, they brutally vandalised the diocesan bishop’s residence, the cathedral parish house and the secretariat building complex,” he said.
“I hereby declare and call for a one week union of prayer in reparation and atonement for this heinous act against our central place of worship and the sanctity of the church.
“The prayer begins from Friday May 7 to Friday May 14 and every parish, chaplaincy and religious community in the diocese is obliged to participate in this holy activity.
“I enjoin you to remain sober and keep the diocese in prayer. With divine assistance and grace, we shall overcome this challenging moment,” Onaga said. (NAN)
