HISTORY OF DIOCESE

Prior to the creation of the Ecclesiastical territory in the Niger Delta region of
Nigeria, there was a missionary enterprise. The first wave of missionary contact was under the protectorate of Portugal, between the 15th and 18th centuries mainly by Capuchin and Augustinian missionaries. Following the pattern of church-state relations, missionaries who called at kings’ courts sought to convert the kings and through them attempted to make the populace Christians.
Some of the rulers encouraged mission work and paid for the maintenance of the missionaries. As at the 16th century, Warri had a flourishing Christian community as many of the populace had embraced Christianity.
However, this initial missionary enterprise crumbled due to various factors and a new missionary endeavour emerged in the 20th century, motivated by the SMA.
Fathers of the Irish Province. The S.M.A Fathers established schools and used them as means of evangelization. As they taught the people how to read and write, they also included religious instructions as part of the school’s curriculum.
Priests like Fr. Luigi Cavegnera, Patrick Shine, Danny O’ Connell and Folley were pioneer missionaries. Missionary priests and teachers in the schools were also involved in pastoral activities within and outside the schools. Chapels and Churches were built to cater for the spiritual well being of the students and the villagers in the neighbourhoods. It was such stations that gradually evolved into parishes in some places. These missionary strategies enhanced the work of

WARRI DIOCESE
Province: Benin Erection: March 10, 1964evangelization and fostered the growth of the Church.
Consequently, with such a flourishing Christian community, His Holiness, Pope Paul VI, created the diocese of Warri from the then Benin Diocese on March 10, 1964. At its creation, Warri Diocese had about eight parishes which include: Warri, Aragba, Ashaka, Sapele, Okpara Inland, Ozoro, Ughelli and Bomadi. The first Bishop of the D i o c e s e , M o s t R e v. L u c a s Nwaezeapu was assisted by Nigerian priests and the SMA missionaries to foster the evangelization of the territory and put the diocese on a strong footing.
With the growth in the Catholic p o p u l a t i o n , t h e t h r e e L o c a l Government Areas of Bomadi, Burutu and Patani were excised from Warri Diocese to form part of what is now the Apostolic Vicariate of Bomadi.
Geographically, the diocese which is situated on both land and riverine areas covers sixteen Local Government Areas of Delta State. It has a landmass of 10,650 squares.
Out of a total of 5,209, 281 (approx), it has a Catholic population of 271,926 (approx).
Since its inception, the diocese has had four chief Shepherds. Theses are: Most Rev. Dr. Lucas Nwaezeapu, Most Rev. Dr. Edmund Fitzgibbon, Most Rev.
