Welcome to Igbo Catholic Community

One of the priorities of this community is to establish programs that support family life and promote cultural awareness of the Igbo community to our younger generation.

The Igbo Catholic community offers liturgical and cultural diversity. It was inaugurated in 2004 to address the spiritual and social needs of the people of Igbo descent from Nigeria in the Bay Area. It also promotes religious and cultural celebration in accord with appropriate Igbo liturgical awareness and understanding. The Igbo Catholic community’s goal is to foster the propagation of Igbo culture and language through the Eucharistic celebration and other liturgical services such as teaching of Igbo Language, catechism, Igbo religious hymns and songs (choir) to our children. Our hope is to transfer the richness of our culture to our children and share our Igbo culture with the rest of the parish, and provide cultural activities such as native dance and artistic performances. The community aims to communicate and collaborate with other national and ethnic communities on matters of mutual interest in the parish and the diocese. The Igbo Mass celebration will be held on the first Sunday of every month, currently at All Saints Catholic Church Parish, Hayward, California. Mass features Igbo ethnic liturgical hymns, charismatic songs and music with exotic musical instruments.

Refreshment usually follows after Mass with all kinds of food, especially African foods.

Assurance of Guidance
PROVERBS 3 5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
And lean not unto thine own understanding,
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
And he shall direct thy paths.


Assurance of Salvation 1 JOHN 5 11& 12
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son., He that hath the Son hath life;and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
