The event which took place at the Vice Chancellor’s residence at Ukwullu, Anambra State, was part of an annual event to remember his late parents who passed on long ago.

This year’s event was made grand by the presence of the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Jonas Benson Okoye who presided over the mass. A large number of Catholic Priests, staff and Students of COOU, also made the event graceful. Guests at the event were entertained with songs by the Trinity Choir of St. Aloysius Gonzaga Chaplaincy, Ukwulu and All Saints Choir of Blessed Iwene Tansi Champlaincy, Igbariam Campus, led by Comrade Casmir Obiakor.
