The 3-day programme organised by the fast growing Celestial Church of Christ King of Kings Cathedral to celebrate the celestial mother of our Lord, Jesus Christ, reached a crescendo today Sunday, July 3, 2022 in the church premises.
The first Holy Mary Day celebration in the young cathedral started on Thursday, June 30, with a night vigil where the congregation were lectured on the importance and virtues of the Holy Mother of Christ.
This was followed by a special service in remembrance of Holy Mary on Friday, July 1.
The 3-day long celebration came to a glorious end on Sunday with a thanksgiving service and a special ministration from a Canada based shepherd and the Head of CCC Western region, Venerable Superior Evangelist Kunle Lawal.
He admonished the parishioners to always submit to the will of God in all they do as Jesus’ mother sought His will during the wedding at Cana, John 2:5. Listen below.

After the sermon, the women in the church delivered special number, rendering different songs joyfully while displaying a huge portrait of the Holy Mother.
Sup. Evang. Dele Akinola, who is the grand patron of the church, led the whole congregation in a special prayer session of breakthrough and mercy.
Known for its service to humanity beyond feeding its members with the word of God, CCC KOK Cathedral also took this further by officially launching Welfare Committee with the sole mandate of catering for any need of her members and non-members beyond spirituality. The members of the committee were brought before the congregation and blessed.
