Adios, Au revoir, Farewell Fr. Peter

At what turned out to be a teary-eyed send off, the members of Corpus Christi Parish bade farewell to their beloved parish priest Fr. Peter Okonkwo on Sunday 26th December, 2021.

In his final sermon Fr. Peter spoke passionately about how his experiences over the six years deeply improved his capacity to love others and to have a deeper relationship with God.

In a post-Mass programme of speeches, singing and poetry, his parishioners gave heavy – hearted tributes, recounted memorable occasions and thanked him for all that he did.

We thank Fr. Peter once more for his invaluable service to our diocese which has no doubt left an indelible mark on all of us. We wish him all the very best in his new assignment.
