Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, AMEN has announced the shutdown of the Ministry for a period of one month.
This move though not contained in the notice released to that effect may not be unconnected to the earlier directive given to him by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Bishop Calistus Onaga.
Mbaka had said during his message to his members on Wednesday last when he reappeared that the Bishop asked him to embark on a 30 day prayer break.
In the notice sent out by the ministry in the early hours of Tuesday, members were informed that Fr. Mbaka was proceeding on a one-month private prayer retreat but was silent on whether the action was in obedience to the Bishop’s order.
The notice reads: “Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability. Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”
