First Mass of the day. Very calm and solemn. Ambient of spirituality and intimacy with God. It usually has less participants compared to other Masses mainly because of the time. Young people and people whose job requires them to be at work on Sundays prefer this time, this includes health workers, and other frontline line workers.
Second Mass of the day. This is the most activity packed mass. Spirituality connected with great songs from the parish choir. It usually has more participants compared to other Masses. This Mass is also streamed live via our YouTube channel and on this website. Most society and group meetings start after this mass.
The last Mass of the day. Can only be described as relaxed. While the timeslot allocated for the mass is strictly maintained, it is usually calm and not hurried since no other mass comes after. workers on night duty like doctors and nurses prefer this Mass as it gives them time to rest after work before proceeding to church.

The movement of the Apostolic Nuntiature to Abuja in 2002 provided a great opportunity to have a public place of worship as different from the private chapel of the Nuntiature…
