Fr. Achulike…28 Years in the Priesthood

01 May

28 Years in the Priesthood

Very Rev. Fr. Boniface Achulike Osuji, CSSp remains one of the ‘youngest” Spiritans of our time. His profoundly calm and pleasant countenance puts you at ease as soon as you meet him. His “youthful” age no doubt matches his youthful heart. Hence, after more than a quarter-of-a-century in the Catholic priesthood,
Fr. Achulike (as he is popularly called) remains hale and hearty.

Ordained on April 28, 1984, this “young” Spiritan continues to be beam with youthful zeal on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The Spiritans of Southwest Nigeria gathered in Benin City for a fundraising event on the same day that Fr. Achulike marked his 28th priestly ordination anniversary. In fact, it was during the light refreshment after the Mass that we all, in a simple ritual of chanting the “Tu es Sacerdos in aeternum” joyfully joined together to wish Fr. Achulike many more happy and healthy years in the priesthood and Spiritan Family.

Fr. Achulike is currently the parish priest of St. Gregory’s Parish, Muniya, Ibadan. He is also the second assistant to the Superior of Spiritans Southwest Nigeria. Ad Multos Annos, Padre!
