Catholic Priests ministering in Cameroon’s Mamfe Diocese are set to offer Holy Mass for the quick and safe release of their colleague who was kidnapped at the end of last week.
The Friday, May 28 Eucharistic celebration across the Cameroonian Diocese announced in a Wednesday, May 26 statement aims to seek divine intervention for the freedom of Fr. Christopher Eboka who has been missing since last Friday.
“We call on all our Priests to rally the faithful in the various Parish churches on Friday, 28 May, 2021 at 9 a.m. to celebrate Holy Mass and pray for his (Fr. Eboka’s) immediate and unconditional release,” the Chancellor of Mamfe Diocese, Fr. Sebastine Sinju, says in his May 26 statement.
The leadership of Mamfe Diocese “is praying and working to secure his release (together with his bike rider),” Fr. Sinju adds in his statement titled, “In Solidarity for the Release of Fr. Christopher Eboka.”
He explains that Fr. Eboka “left Mamfe town for a brief Pastoral trek, in view of the Pentecost, to some Mission Stations of the Cathedral Parish on Friday, May 21.”
