A Pastoral Message from Archbishop John Wilson to Catholics from Nigeria, or with Nigerian Heritage, in the Archdiocese of Southwark

On his first trip to the continent of Africa, Archbishop John Wilson visited Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja, and Gwagwalada to ordain 10 new priests. Archbishop John spoke of a deep and powerful faith in the Lord Jesus within the people he met, where “no matter what”, the “name and person of our Saviour is the centre and focus of life”.

In this Pastoral Message, the Archbishop thanks Nigerian Catholics for making the Archdiocese their home and expresses gratitude for the ways in which Nigerian Catholics make the joy and fidelity of their faith present in the Archdiocese.

Archbishop John said:

“God bless all Nigerians, and all the peoples of Africa, and those descended from them, present here in our Archdiocese of Southwark”.
