Group decries moral decadence in society
The District Governor, Serra International, District 130B, Nwadike Remigius, has lamented the level of moral decadence among youths, saying every parent should be conscious of the fact that no matter the education available to children, whether in school, church or where their pursuing their vocational training, moral education of the children starts from home.
Nwadike also decried the mode of dressing among today’s boys and girls, saying that what is happening is a reflection of parents’ commitment to the upbringing up of their wards, adding that if every family would train their children as they ought to, the society will be better for it.
He made this known in Lagos ahead of the 8th District Convention of Serra International, which will hold at St. Agnes Catholic Church, Maryland, from April 30 to May 2, with the theme: ‘Managing our rich harvest of vocation in an economically depressed and morally depraved society.’
“The standard home is the one that anywhere the children are, they should be able to know what and what their parents would agree to or not.
“We should go back to the family basis as well as family values,” he said.
Nwadike, who remarked that Serra International’s yearly convention comes up every first week of May, disclosed that this year’s convention will hold on Saturday, May 1 to commence 10.00 a.m. with His Grace, Archbishop Adewale Martins as the chief host.
He added that there would be presentations with resource persons on ground such as, Godfrey Onah of Nsukka Bishop Francis Adeshina of Ijebu-Ode, among others, while the Chairman, Lumen Christi Television, Prince Robert Soji Olagunji, is the chairman of the day.
According to Nwadike, Serra USA was formed in 1935 with responsibility for the promotion of vocations to the priesthood and religious life and it is always subject to the Diocesan Bishop. Serra International, with over 13,000 members, has 500 clubs and is present in 47 countries and six continents.
