Catholic faithful banned from attending Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry

Fr. Mbaka

Catholic faithful have been banned by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Bishop Calistus Onaga, from attending Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry.

This order comes after Mbaka said that Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will not win the 2023 presidential elections because he is stingy.

Mbaka’s statement caused outrage on social media as he was criticized for his actions. Meanwhile, the Catholic Diocese of Enugu disassociated itself from Mbaka’s utterances.

Also, the church said that Mbaka’s statement on Obi violates the Canon 220 of 1983 Code of the Canon Law which forbids anyone from hurting the good name of someone illegitimately.

Although Mbaka apologized for his action, Catholics were still directed not to attend the church Mbaka heads. The letter was signed by Bishop Onaga.

The letter read, “In the light of the happenings in the Catholic Adoration Ministry Chaplaincy Enugu; capable of undermining the Catholic faith and teachings; and after several fraternal corrections and admonitions to Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka, the Chaplain of the Ministry; and after having given him pastoral directives and guidelines for the Ministry Chaplaincy, which he persistently violated;

“And in fulfillment of my pastoral duties as the Chief Shepherd with the obligation to promote and safeguard the Catholic faith and morals in Enugu Diocese, I hereby prohibit all Catholics (clergy, religious and lay faithful) henceforth from attending all religious and liturgical activities of the Catholic Adoration Ministry until the due canonical process initiated by the Diocese is concluded.

“My decision is based on the fact that some of the teachings and utterances of Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka at the Catholic Adoration Ministry are not consistent with the teachings and faith of the Catholic Church.

“I enjoin all the Christian Faithful to keep praying for Fr. Mbaka and the Catholic Diocese of Enugu as I entrust him and the Diocese to the maternal care and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles.”
