UK Bishops Promotes Igbo Attire


The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth, United Kingdom on Sunday, February 23rd observed a Nigerian Cultural Mass.
Philip Egan, the eighth and present Bishop of Portsmouth and other priests present in the diocese were all adorned in vestments blended with the popular Igbo traditional Isiagu attire as they celebrated the Nigerian culture during the mass. 
After the Mass, the Bishop, the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and the Mayoress were reportedly conferred with Igbo titles.
Before the mass, Bishop Egan had taken to his Twitter handle to show off his beautifully made Isiagu vestment while urging every member of the diocese to pray for Nigerians and everyone from Africa.
“I’m preparing now for the Nigerian Cultural Mass this afternoon here in the Cathedral at 3 o’clock. Fr. Daniel has provided some remarkable vestments! Let us pray today for all Nigerians in our Diocese and for everyone from Africa who is resident here,” he tweeted.
