The Archbishop-elect of Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province and Diocesan, Osun North Diocese Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Abiodun Taiwo Olaoye has commissioned new altar servers and ordained two priests during the 2022 Trinity Ordination Service held recently at Oba Moses Oyinlola Memorial Anglican Church, Okuku.
Olaoye charged the over 20 altar servers to live up to their words and render faithful service to humanity.
Rev. Emmanuel Adetunji Babalola and Rev. Segun Victor Kazeem, who were deacons, were also ordained priests at the service.
In his message, Rev. Canon Charles Ademilokun, who also led the 2022 Ordination Retreat, enjoined the new priests to be dedicated to holy living and promote God’s kingdom.
Ademilokun admonished them to shun anything that will soil their garments of righteousness, adding that they are called to represent the interest of their Master, Jesus Christ and not their own self-interest.
Apart from family members, friends and members of parishes across the diocese that graced the occasion, others were Mama Osun North/Ibadan Province, Mrs. Theresa Omolara Olaoye; Clergy of the Diocese and their wives; Barr. Funlayo Oyinlola, Diocesan Chancellor; Barr. George Oyeniyi, Diocesan Registrar; former First Lady of Osun State, Chief Omolola Oyinlola; Prof. Kolawole Adesina and his wife.
