Our Founder

Our Founder was Archbishop Charles Heerey, C.S.Sp. (1890 – 1967), an Irishman born of good Catholic Irish parents. Sent as a Holy Ghost missionary Priest, he arrived Nigeria in November 1922, was consecrated Bishop in 1927, succeeded Bishop Joseph Shanahan as the Vicar Apostolic of Southern Nigeria in 1931, and was raised to the status of Archbishop in 1950. His natural dignity and native honesty ruled out of his life all pretence and posing…” (cf. Archbishop Charles Heerey, Apostle of Eastern Nigeria by John Roche, C.S.Sp.)
