Father Chukwudi Jieme, SMMM

Father Chukwudi Jieme, is a congregational priest who belongs to the order of the Sons of Mary Mother of Mercy, (SMMM).

Father Chukwudi comes from Nigeria, and has been in Canada for about 5 years… ministering in the Toronto area and in the Sagkeeng First Nation area…Presently, he is studying at the University of Manitoba to get his Masters in Peace & Conflict Resolution.

With the loss of Father Owen, who was called home to God so suddenly and unexpectedly, we are very grateful to Father Chukwudi for saying yes to Archbishop LeGatt, in accepting to serve for a few months as Priest Moderator here at Holy Redeemer…hopefully until the end of May… at which time, upon the request of his religious superior, he will leave to serve in another diocese in Ontario.

It has been so delightful to learn that the names of our Nigerian brothers and sisters, have a special and beautiful meaning. “Chukwudi” means “God is” … And yes, God is truly present through him…through a wonderful priest who is young & energetic & eager to serve!

We are extremely grateful to Father Chukwudi for saying “yes” to God; and we welcome him very warmly during this time of deep-freeze Arctic temperatures as he begins with eagerness his service here at Holy Redeemer!

Thank-You, Father Chukwudi!
