Catholics warm up for 2018 World Day of Peace



Catholic faithful across the world are now warming up for the 2018 World Day of Peace as declared by Pope Francis to hold on New Year Day, Monday, January 1, this year, reports ITRealms.

With the theme ‘Migrants and Refugees: Men and Women in search of Peace’ the Pontiff noted that the World Peace Day is set aside annually by the Holy See to spread the gospel of peaceful co-existence amongst peoples of the world.

ITRealms gathered that in the Archdiocese of Lagos, the event would kick off with a Holy Mass at the Holy Cross Cathedral with the Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev Dr. Alfred Adewale Martins as the Chief Celebrant, to be assisted by the Director of Social Communicators, Msgr. Gabriel Osu by 10.am.

Also, ITRealms reports that the occasion would be graced some members of Catholic Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria (CAMPAN), Papal Knights/Medalists, top government functionaries and members of the diplomatic corps. The occasion will also afford an opportunity for the reading of the Pope’s New Year message, while the Archbishop of Lagos will also brief the media on his State of the Nation address.

All Catholics and media practitioners are enjoined to be part of this celebration of peace to usher in the New Year.
