To pilot the discourse was Mrs. Ikhumetse Agatha, a seasoned, microbiologist and a member of the Laudato Si Movement in Nigeria. She analyzed the urgent concerns of climate change, the rise in green house gas emissions and some lifestyle changes that could help to reduce the deteriorating state of mother earth. The Guest Speaker also added that as priests-to-be, and as priests, we can utilize our moral and religious influence to lead individuals to an “ecological conversion” and a new way of seeing the created world. In attendance were the Rector, Heads of Departments, other members of the Formation Team and the Seminarians.
