Nkpor, Aug.12, 2019 (MOI) Hold fast to God and draw your children closer to Him, especially with the current situation of the country, a cleric has urged.


Sr. Mary Frances De Chantal Onuoha, a former Principal of Cor Mariae Girls Secondary School, Nkpor-Agu, said this while receiving some old girls of the school who visited her at the Old Peoples’ Home for reverend sisters in Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent, Nkpor.

``I will pray for you. As a matter of fact, I have booked a mass for all the old girls that will be said on my feast day.

``There is nothing in this world. If you are not embedded in God, you are wasting time. You have now become families. Before you go to bed, say family rosary,’’ she added.


Cor Mariae Old Girls Association President for Onitsha Branch, Ms Frances Nwabufoe thanked the reverend sister for nurturing them in the ways of God and on the path of truth.

She pledged that the old girls would return in December to enable those of them from other parts of the country and in The Diaspora to visit her, as they would be home for Christmas celebration.

Sr. Onuoha, then, prayed for the old girls who came and those who could not make it. She also prayed for children of the old girls.


Cor Mariae Secondary School is a catholic school for girls, run by Sisters of the Immaculate  heart of Mary Mother of Christ.

It was established in 1998 and had Sr. Onuoha as the longest serving principal in office, from 1999 until 2007 when she was sent abroad to open a version of the school.

The old girls association in the school is made up of four branches – Abuja, Lagos, Onitsha and Owerri.

Currently, Sr. Onuoha is 77 year-old. (MOI)
