Bishop Igani welcomes churches from Liberia
In October 2012, the Most Rev Ibiso Igani, Rector of Christ the King Cathedral and Bishop for the Diocese of Nigeria, West Africa, visited Liberia and Ghana to receive churches into the ICCEC and ordain clergy. The account of his visit to Ghana was reported earlier at this link.
Bishop Igani was warmly received in Liberia by Brother Emmanuel T. K. Doe. He spent a week teaching the ICCEC’s Certificate program and encouraging parishioners in two churches who showed much interest in the ICCEC. On October 28, 2012, Bros Emmanuel Doe and Ignatius Doe were ordained into the Priesthood and preparations were made to train men interested in the Diaconate. The two parishes in Liberia are in Cadwell and Bouming counties and are overseen by Fr Emmanuel Doe and Fr Ignatius Doe, respectively. Fr Ignatius is a former Roman Catholic with seven years of seminary education. He became interested in the ICCEC when Fr Emmannuel introduced our communion to him. Mrs E. Doe is a continual strength to the Church as she ministers among the women who have thronged to the Certificate program.
We thank God for our brothers and sisters in Liberia with whom we are partners in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray regularly for their ministry in West Africa.
[ Apologies to our Liberian churches for publishing this story so late. Please send us news of what God is doing through you in Liberia so we can post them here to encourage others. Fr Scott. ]
