Catholic Church Clarifies Mbaka’s “Interim” Removal From Adoration Ministry, Deployment To Monastery

The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria has issued clarification on the reports of the reposting of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, to the Monastery.

National Director of Social Communications, Padre Mike Umoh, who gave the clarification in a statement on Monday evening, said Father Mbaka was never removed as Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry.

In a statement titled: ‘Fr. Mbaka: The True Position,’ Father Umoh said: “Going by an interview with the Director of Communications, Enugu Diocese, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi, Very Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka was not removed from the Adoration Ministry, as many reports are suggesting.”

Rather, according to Father Achi, since it was recommended that Father Mbaka takes time away in solitude, in order to listen to what the Spirit of God has to tell him, he was allowed to propose a priest to administer, in the interim, to the faithful at the Adoration Ministry.

He said, “With the approval of his Bishop, on Sunday, October 2, 2022, Father Mbaka introduced Father Anthony Amadi to the worshippers.

“Unfortunately, some people were still not pleased, and would prefer that Fr. Mbaka remains.

“What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic, should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka, to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God specially, come out stronger and better in recognising His will for him and gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.

“The Church loves Fr. Mbaka and cherishes him as an illustrious son.

“May our Mother Mary, the Queen of all Apostles, intercede for him. Amen,” the statement partly read.
