THE BEST LAID PLANS… PDF Print E-mail

.

Our Jubilee got run over by a pandemic. Well, yes and no. Already, several of the events that were to highlight the 175th anniversary of our founding have been cancelled, and a number of others in the summer will likely suffer the same fate. More than the events themselves, the anxieties and preoccupations that go along with a global health crisis seem a far cry from the celebratory nature of a Jubilee year.

INTERVIEW WITH BRO. MATTHEW-MARY OKEREKE, A.A. PDF Print E-mail

BRO. MATTHEW-MARY OKEREKE, A.A.

- Would you share a bit about your background: family, childhood, early education etc.?

- My name is Matthew-Mary Okereke. I am the third child among four siblings. I was born on May 4, 1986. My father passed on to eternal life in November 1992. This incident changed the trajectory of my family in many different ways. My siblings and I grew up with just our mother who is probably the strongest human God ever created. Although burdened with the onerous task of raising four children without a significant other, our mother raised us up with her head held high despite endless challenges. From our mother we learned that struggling need not necessarily be seen as an irreversible death sentence. With the right attitude, struggling makes one stronger because more often than not, what matters more is not what happens to one but one’s reactions. I had my primary and high school education in Lagos, Nigeria. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the now-called Dominican University, Ibadan, Nigeria.
