Adams Oshiomole Donates Church Building To Catholic Community


The former governor of Edo State, Mr Adams Oshiomole has donated a new church auditorium to the Catholic faithfuls of St Catholic Church, Iyamho, Auchi Diocese in Edo State.

The former Edo State governor, who is also the immediate past APC national chairman demonstrated this philanthropic and humanitarian gesture some months ago by building a new church for the parish. The new church building having been completed recently, was dedicated on 5th April, 2021.

The church dedication mass was presided over by the bishop of Auchi Diocese, Most Reverend Dr. Gabriel Dunia and concelebrated by Rev. Fr. Peter Igelewa and other priests who were present at the occasion.

The event also featured presentation of awards to deserving Parishioners and dedication of the new Marian Grotto. Adams Oshiomole was presented with a parcel, a beautiful artistic drawing of himself.

The bishop of Auchi Diocese expressed his appreciation, on behalf of the Catholic faithfuls, to the former governor and prayed God's blessing upon him.

Below are some photos taken at the dedication service of the new church.

The church is really a befitting place of worship for the people of God.
