It is another moment of sadness for the Diocese of Enugu as commendation service of a serving Priest holds today at Christ Church Uwani,  Enugu State. The Bishop of the Diocese and Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province, the Most Rev’d Dr. E. O. Chukwuma OON was in attendance.

The Diocese of Enugu, Anglican Communion mourns again as the remaining of one of her priests, Revd Simeon Nwokedi who was called unto glory on the 26th of August, 2020, barely one month after the burial of a serving priest in the Diocese, Rev. Canon Ejikeme Ezenwome was laid for commendation.

According to the report and the eyewitnessed accounts of the Parishioners in the Parish where the Late Revd. Simeon Nwokedi served before his death; he was said to slump suddenly in his house where he was with a little child. The little child alerted neighbors and the passers-by who came and confirmed him dead. He was said to fall ill for a brief period of time.
