INNOCENTIAN CARE (rc 73691)
Innocentian Care is the apostolate body of the Holy Innocents Society of Our Lady, Queen and Mother founded out of compassion for the Holy Innocents by Rev. Fr. Uche Chrysogonus Okorie to reverence Christ in every human life. The Holy Innocents refer to the children who were called to sacrifice their lives at an age when they were totally innocent, voiceless and without representation, and who were unaware of the sacrifice they were asked to make for the safety and life of the Child Jesus.
ATTACKS ON HUMAN LIFE
A concern for the Innocentian Care is the increasing number of ways in which attacks are launched on human life in the world, particularly in Nigeria. Chiefly among them is abortion which is prevalent among schoolgirls. The Innocentian Care is making strong efforts to stop the trend by offering quality education to young people with good morals. Presently the society has three schools in Orlu, south-eastern Nigeria with over 400 pulpils and students. Those of them from poor homes are on free education courtesy of the financial donations it receives from Almas, a charity based in Ireland. In this way the society strives to uphold and enhance the dignity of human life. .Read More
BE PART OF THE MISSION
In your attitude towards life, be like Mary, the Mother of Jesus who, we believe as a person and as a mother could identify with the loss of a child and understand the suffering and loss that the mother of each of the Holy Innocents experienced. This quality of love and compassion continues today to be offered to all of us who call upon her as our Mother. We can trust that she relate to our difficult experiences as we journey through our lives here on earth, and in a most special way to the most vulnerable of our world, that of the innocent children. Therefore, let us as a member or accociate ot supporter of the Holy Innocents society, a pious society in the Catholic Church, let us celebrate Mary as a model of compassion and committed contemplation. We can among other ways do this by having the ardent desire to ponder prayerfully on God’s gift of life in our hearts, and to proclaim his love and compassion concretely through our manner of life and service of life freely and courageously in the spirit of Mary for a genuine human development and Christian growth..
We are grateful to Rev. Fr. Brian Kavanaugh and all the members of Almas Charity, Ireland for their regular financial support to the Innocentian care charity apostolate. May God bless and rewyard you.
