Welcome to Igbo Catholic Community
4TH SUNDAY OF EASTER
(GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY)
Kind of wondering what the Pope, the bishops, priests and church leaders are thinking in these times of 'great distress', criticism of the leaders of the church for heinous crimes committed by their own on their own innocent and defenseless children. Is it a golden opportunity for the “Jews” [press, atheists, abortionists, gay-lesbians, haters of Catholicism] to elicit their jealousy and anger? Powerful women and leading men have been incited to launch attack and persecution on the church and its leaders. Can I hold my head high and say proudly that "We are His people the sheep of His flock” [Psalmist]? We will be among those multitude from every race, nation, people and tongue who stand daily before his throne to praise and worship Him in his temple. ''For no one can take the sheep out of my hand'' says the Good Shepherd. [Bonus Pastor]

Our mission is to establish a thriving Catholic ethnic community for the Igbo Diaspora in New York. We seek to build a community that galvanizes and serves as a rallying point, a fountain of hope, and a forum for the worship of Almighty God in Igbo language and in accordance with the Roman Catholic faith. We envision a community that preserves and perpetuates the Igbo culture, language, social values, charity, and our Roman Catholic heritage through evangelization, catechesis, Bible studies, and advancement of Catholic principles and ideals.
