About The Diocese
What has emerged as Nnewi Diocese is no doubt a product of Onitsha Archdiocese. Before now, Onitsha Archdiocese had given birth to several dioceses; for instance, Enugu and Awka diocese were created out of Onitsha Archdiocese in 1962 and 1978 respectively. Nnewi Diocese is another God's gift to the Catholic Church in Igboland. God has graciously blessed that Diocese with a young and dynamic Bishop in the person of Most Rev. Hilary Okeke.
