Welcome to Igbo Catholic Community
SHOW GOD YOUR LOVE
Basically, we intimidate, oppress, harass, suppress, and exploit people we don't love. We will surely do everything to protect, defend, support and help those we love. Sometimes, people lie for those they love. God is categorically saying that He must defend and protect the poor and and weak ones we wrong. God so love the World that He gave His only begotten Son as a ransom for many. Christ gave us the ultimate sacrifice by dying on the cross for us to have salvation. Why can't we emulate Him and show some love to our neighbors. Love is more than words. (Amor amplior quam verba est) We have to translate this love into action and concrete terms. Love is the flavor and spice of life. Without love, life is pointless. (Sine amor, nihil est vita) Last Sunday Christ encouraged us to fulfill our civic duties by paying taxes, today, we are to pay our annual tithes and taxes to the Church and ultimately to God by giving harvest produces. Your gift bears your invisible signature as you offer it to God. "For you, with great love"- tibi magno cum amor. May God bless us as we bring our gifts to Him.

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.
