The President, Catholic Men Organisation, CMO, of the Catholic Church of Transfiguration, CCT, Arepo, Barr. Joseph Jiakponna has noted with nostalgia, the roles and responsibilities of Fathers in families, religious, as well as nation’s building, stressing that they deserve to be celebrated.

Barr. Jiakponna, who spoke to SylvaNewsOnline, ahead of this year’s Father’s Day Celebrations, scheduled for Sunday, June 16, 2024, frowned at the situation, where men are not celebrated in the society, despite their enormous contributions in the family and society.

According to him, this year’s celebration would feature Holy Mass/Thanksgiving; Dance Display by CWO; Drama presentations by the youths, as well as the Children.

Other programmes lined-up include Quiz competition, Novelty Match and Know-Your-Spouce, among other side attractions.

Beyond this, the CMO, according to the Chairman would also play its role as the pillar of the church by donating materials for building of Children Hall under construction.

His statements, “this year’s celebration is very vital in our lives, as fathers. In the family, church and the society, fathers have enormous roles to play. We have greater responsibilities in the society, so it will not be out of place to celebrate ourselves on June 16, 2024 because, if we keep waiting for the society and families to celebrate us, we may be waiting endlessly.

“So, come June 16 in CCT, Arepo, Abeokuta Diocese, the Catholic Men Organisation will celebrate Fathers’ Day, we shall celebrate ourselves on that day”, he stated.

While appreciating men for struggling to make ends meet, the CMO President also encouraged Fathers not to relent, as they are passing through daily challenges to continue to keep on, adding that with God by their side, and St Joseph as their Patron, they would continue to grow in love and in the Lord, who would always intervene to lessen their daily burdens.
