Meet Father Udoka Chris Nwosu

Cache Creek, B.C.

Fr. Udoka Chris Nwosu, is a priest of the Catholic Diocese of Orlu in Imo State Nigeria. I was born on 5th May 1950, and was ordained on 8th of August 1981, guided by my favourite biblical quotation “I made myself all things to all men in order to save some at any cost (1 Cor. 9: 22). This is my Motto in my priestly ministry. After my ordination, I was the Chancellor of the diocese, then sent for studies overseas. I returned to be a Formator in the Major Seminary; I continued the priestly ministry in Germany and now in Canada in Kamloops diocese. My favourite pastime engagements are Gardening, Singing and Reading. I enjoy Nigerian, Canadian and German dishes. The journey to the priesthood started in 1965 in St, Mary’s Minor Seminary. My big inspirator and mentor was my father, a primary school teacher and Catechist in many Catholic Missions.

Loving God, each member of our family is a special gift from You. You have given each  of us gifts and talents so we may enjoy life, but also so we can share with others. Generous and loving people are needed for service and leadership in our church. Help us to know how to encourage and support each other so that we can respond generously to this need. We know that You will be with us, inviting us to become the kind of people you desire us to be. Help us to trust in You and in each other.  Amen
