January Prayer Breakfast

PLEASE NOTE:   From this date our monthly Prayer Breakfast will be held at    St Theresa's Parish (7508 29 Ave NW)

Guest Speaker: Deacon Emmanuel Ekanem

Emmanuel Ekanem, is a seminarian at St. Joseph Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta, for the Archdiocese of Grouard-MacLennan. He will be ordained a priest in 2020. His native homeland is Nigeria where he became a computer software developer before he received the call from the Lord nine years ago to become a priest.

He had a mother who provided him with all the motherly care and guidance necessary to form a personality that was religiously, socially, emotionally and intellectually sound. Emmanuel was encouraged by a friend and faithful witness of Jesus, who he met in high school; she was instrumental in his conversion to the Catholic faith from the Muslim religion. He discovered Jesus Christ through Marian devotions and later became a Catholic in 1997. This friendship further led to the conversion of five of his family members (including his parents) from Islamic religion to Catholicism; it was the best thing that happened to him and them. In August of 2015 Deacon Emmanuel came Canada to finish his theological studies for the priesthood.
