A MESSAGE from Fr Daniel Udofia, MSP

I am a member of the Missionary Society of St Paul of Nigeria (MSP) and am from a West African country called Nigeria. I was ordained a missionary priest on the 27th of June, 2009. I also trained as a journalist and was appointed the editor of the Catholic Ambassador Magazine, a mission magazine of the MSP from 2012 till 2020 and am on my Sabbatical leave right now. I am incredibly happy to be in your midst and to work with you as your brother and friend. So do not hesitate to reach out to me whenever you need prayers and blessings. God bless you all.
