Members of Catholic Youth Organization of Nigeria (CYON) of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Fegge Onitsha, Anambra State marked the 2022 Valentine Day alongside birthday celebration of January and February celebrants in the parish on Sunday, 13th February 2022.
The event which featured cutting of cake, exchange of gifts, fast fingers and lots more was aimed at sharing the love of Christ with members of the group.
In an interview with the group’s Acting President, Bro Chisom Nkamuo, Daily Updates gathered that the event was meant to reawaken their consciousness on the need to remain united.
“We have discovered that genuine love is lacking in today’s society, so, we decided to reactivate the spirit of giving and sharing with one another. We want to remind ourselves to love one another as Christ has loved us. We also want to build selfless love and togetherness among our members and to encourage marriage between our members.”
Anchoring the session on exchange of gifts, a member of the group, Dr John Bosco Okoha Umeh explained that giving is one of the five ways of expressing love alongside words of affection and humility.
