The management and staff of Bishop Okoye Spiritan Secondary School have joined the global Christian community to celebrate the 2020 Pentecost. The annual ritual observed largely in compliance with Covid 19 protocols as provide for by the National Centre for Disease Control, started with a holy mass. BOSSS Spiritan Community Superior, Rev. Fr. Dominic Nnoshiri C.S.Sp welcomed all who joined the community to mark the day. He described the Pentecost as a unique one as it was the first that would be celebrated without the students due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

In his homily, the chief celebrant, Rev. Fr. Remigius Onyeaghala C.S.Sp who centred his homily on the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit enjoined all Christians to pursue the things that are heavenly. He noted that Pentecost was a significant Christian festival in the church’s calendar and should be so celebrated. He urged Christians to be opened to receive the Holy Spirit who would counsel them and make them bold to preach the gospel as an important injunction in Christendom.

The principal of BOSSS Rev. Fr Christopher Amaubosi C.S.Sp, in his speech similarly thanked those who participated in the celebration. He reiterated the place of the Holy Spirit in the life of Christians noting that the Holy Spirit is central to our life as Christians.

Immediately after the Holy mass, attention was shifted to the reception hall where pomp, fanfare comedy and choreographic performances took over the event that became quite unique and rewarding. It was indeed a show of talents with the Spiritans stealing the show.
