Mbaka not removed from Adoration Ministry — Catholic Church


The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) has refuted claims that the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Fr. Ejike Mbaka, was removed from his position in the church.

According to a statement by the church, Fr. Anthony Amadi was only brought to the church as its interim leader while Fr Mbaka spends some time in solitude at a monastery.

The aim of him going to the monastery was to hear what the Spirit of God had to tell him and not because he would not be returning to his position again.

The CSN disclosed this in a press statement issued in Abuja by its National Director of Social Communications, Padre Michael Umoh.

The statement read, “Going by an interview with the Director of Communications, Enugu Diocese, Rev. Fr. Ben Achi, Very Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka was not removed from the Adoration Ministry, as many reports are suggesting.

“Rather, according to Fr. Achi, since it was recommended that Fr. Mbaka takes time away in solitude, in order to listen to what the Spirit of God has to tell him, he was allowed to propose a priest to administer, in the interim, to the faithful at the Adoration Ministry.

“With the approval of his Bishop, on Sunday, 2 October 2022, Fr. Mbaka introduced Fr. Anthony Amadi to the worshippers.

“Unfortunately, some people were still not pleased and would prefer that Fr. Mbaka remains.

“What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic, should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka, to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God specially, come out stronger and better in recognizing His will for him and gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.

“The Church loves Fr. Mbaka and cherishes him as an illustrious son.”
