Lagos


Society of St Paul purchased two and a half acres of land in Lagos in the year 2010. There was a house which the Paulines eventually modified to suit their stay. The house was actually opened on 7 September 2011, and the  community was canonically erected and made the house of Novitiate for Nigeria. The first batch of four novices began their novitiate with Fr Johnson Vattakunnel as their master. They made their First Profession on 26 September, 2012.

Towards the end of 2014, during a solemn Eucharistic celebration presided over by His Grace, Alfred Adewale Martins, the archbishop of Lagos, a newly constructed building was blessed and consecrated in Lagos as the new formation house. Part of the old structure, i.e., the former residence, is renovated to situate our Media Institute. Today, together with formation of different groups, the community of Lagos takes care of the spiritual needs of the laity around, a task officially entrusted by the Archbishop of Lagos.

Thoughts

 16/11/2018 The Acts of the Apostles and the Epistles of St Paul are the teachings of Jesus lived by the disciples, exposed, adapted to the needs of the faithful, from those to whom Jesus entrusted the care of continuing His work: there is nothing more touching, more effective than this first commentary of the Gospel (ACV, 67).
