VISIT OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF LAGOS, NIGERIA

Archbishop Ademowo and the RectorWe bring you the good news of the visit of The Archbishop of The Province of Lagos, Nigeria, The Most Rev Dr Ephraim Adebola Ademowo (OON, FNAL) and his amiable wife Mrs. Oluranti I Ademowo.

Archbishop Ademowo and his wife arrived on Saturday 9th August 2008. They worshipped in our sister parish Whitechurch Parish where he preached and baptized his first grandchild John Ayomide Adebola. They were later treated to a sumptuous Dinner by The Archbishop of Dublin and his wife The Most Rev Dr John and Betty Neill in the Orlagh Retreat Centre.

The Archbishop and his wife also visited our two cathedrals, St Patrick and Christ church where they were accorded official reception and guided tour of the institutions. They later visited the Archbishop of Dublin in his house and after that paid a courtesy call on the Nigerian High Commission in Dublin.

They were full of praise of the warmth of the Irish people and their hospitality and said they will be visiting more frequently.

Archbishop Ademowo was presented with a special 60th Birthday card at the Dinner by Canon Patrick Comerford on behalf of the members of The International Community.

Rev Obinna Ulogwara was formally from The Diocese of Lagos and he was Chaplain to The Archbishop before his secondment to the Diocese of Dublin and Glendalough.

The Dinner was attended by Tallaght Parishioners as well as the good Rector, Rev William Deverell.

Archbishop Ademowo has since gone back and wishes us all every blessing with a grateful heart.
