In a bid to tackle moral decay prevalent in our society, parents have been called to encourage and allow their children belong to different societies in the church where they would be enriched with the knowledge of God.
The president Holy Childhood association Holy Cross parish Nkpor Br. Chukwuebuka Okafor gave the advice during a yearly event of the association.
He expressed worry on how some parents forbid their children from belonging to Holy Childhood association, Blue Army, legion of Mary and other societies where they will be nurtured and drilled in things of faith. ” When patents prevent their children from being members of church groups, their children can easily abandon Catholic faith later in life, because attending Sunday masses alone may not give them elaborate opportunity to be grounded in faith. Some nowadays youth born into Catholic faith are consistently embracing peganism because they lack that faith structure and as a result, can be easily deceived to go fetish.”
Holy Childhood association he said is an association that brings children closer to Christ and gives them sense of belonging.
March past groups and cultural dancing groups took their turns to entertain fellow children during the event.
