Adoration Ministry Ban: Enugu Bishop Bans Catholics, Priests from Mbaka’s Ministry
Why Adoration Ministry Ban?
Remember that Father Mbaka recently attacked the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in a video, calling him a stingy man who cannot be president of Nigeria.
Following public outrage, the embattled priest apologized to the former Anambra State governor.
Adoration Ministry Ban
According to a statement signed by the Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Callistus Onaga, the suspension is due to Fr Mbaka’s utterances, which he claims violate the church’s teachings.
He did, however, order that no Catholic priests or lay faithful should participate in Adoration Ministry activities until the Diocese’s canonical process is completed.
Mbaka Adoration Ministry Ban Official letter
The letter banning Catholics going to Adoration Ministry reads,
“To All the Clergy, Religious and Lay Faithful in the Catholic Diocese of Enugu
“Dear Msgri, Frs., Bros. and Srs..
Dear People of God,
PASTORAL INJUNCTION ON ATTENDANCE TO CATHOLIC ADORATION MINISTRY CHAPLAINCY ENUGU
“In the light of the happenings in the Catholic Adoration Ministry Chaplaincy Enugu; capable of undermining the Catholic faith and teachings; and after several fraternal corrections and admonitions to Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka, the Chaplain of the Ministry; and after having given him pastoral directives and guidelines for the Ministry Chaplaincy, which he persistently violated;
“and in fulfilment of my pastoral duties as the Chief Shepherd with the obligation to promote and safeguard the Catholic faith and morals in Enugu Diocese, I hereby prohibit all Catholics (clergy, religious and lay faithful) henceforth from attending all religious and liturgical activities of the Catholic Adoration Ministry until the due canonical process initiated by the Diocese is concluded.
“My decision is based on the fact that some of the teachings and utterances of Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka at the Catholic Adoration Ministry are not consistent with the teachings and faith of the Catholic Church.
“I enjoin all the Christian Faithful to keep praying for Fr. Mbaka and the Catholic Diocese of Enugu as I entrust him and the Diocese to the maternal care and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles.”
