Mass wedding holds in Abuja suburb attacked twice by Boko Haram

Despite the fear of insecurity and past incidents of terrorist attacks in this town near Abuja, New Nyanya is peaceful as it witnesses social and religious activities.

It was indeed a day of joy for parishioners of St. Sylvester Catholic Church New Nyanya in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State as 80 couples were given the sacrament of matrimony by the Catholic Bishop of Lafia Diocese, Mathew Audu.

In a statement signed by the public relations officer the Church, Ewache Ajefu, the church said that the ceremony was unique and historic in the history of St. Sylvester Catholic Church.

The marriage ceremony and the Sacrament of Confirmation put together by the Parish Priest of St. Sylvester Catholic Church New Nyanya, Lawrence Anyembugu, were part of the key activities lined up for first pastoral visit of the Bishop to the Independent Mission.

Speaking at the occasion, the Bishop admonished the couples to cloth themselves with the love of Christ in order to have a sustainable marriage life, stressing that marriage without love is meaningless.

Citing many examples of causes of breakage in marriage life, Bishop Audu called on them to avoid pitfalls that would lead to regrets, adding that exemplary Christian life was key to successful marriage.

It is a district of Karu Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, and is among the towns that make up the Karu Urban Area, a conurbation of towns stretching into the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). New Nyanya is loosely considered as part of the metropolitan area of Abuja.
