Oct 21, 2004
In a Catholic bulletin issued recently, the Cardinal bemoaned lack of faith in youths and elders adding that by the lack of knowledge and confident their faith has brought about less spirituality.

(Source unknown, Aug. 12 2004) Consequently, he mandated parish priests to embark on accelerated catechesis and evangelisation so as to reverse the trend.

He equally suggested that the Catholic monthly forum for questions and answers should center on the Catholic faith as well as making the 2004 Catechetical Week booklet available to the faithful especially catechists and catechumens.

According to the Cardinal, the booklet will help deepen their understanding and practice of the faith Another adding that they should equally establish Basic Christian Communities (BCCS).
