CEPACS Church Committee to Celebrate 50 Years Grand Anniversary in Lagos, Nigeria

The Pan African Committee for Social Communications (CEPACS) is about to mark a significant achievement – its 50th anniversary. This special celebration will take place from November 18th to 21st, 2023, at the Lumen Christi Catholic TV Retreat and Media Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. 

The event is set to be a grand gathering, with important communication experts and guests coming from all over Africa and beyond.

CEPACS, which was created in 1973 by the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM), has a vital mission: to spread the message of the Catholic Church across Africa using modern communication tools. They’ve been doing this for 50 years, and that’s something worth celebrating.

The upcoming anniversary celebration is bringing together communication experts, Catholic Bishops, and leaders from various African regions. These individuals will play a significant role in the event, along with members of SECAM’s Standing Committee.

Bishop Emmanuel Badejo, who leads the Oyo Diocese in Nigeria and serves as the President of CEPACS, is excited about the event. He mentioned that the celebration would be attended by communication leaders, officers from communication organizations, and experts from Africa, as well as dignitaries from other parts of the world. Bishop Badejo also heads the organizing committee for the celebration, which includes communication experts, both clergy and laypeople, and Church officials from Nigeria and other African countries. Their job is to make sure that all attendees have a memorable and enriching experience during the anniversary celebration.

The CEPACS 50th celebration will bring together high-ranking Church officials from all over Africa and beyond. Archbishop Alfred Adewale Martins, who leads the Lagos Archdiocese, expressed his joy at Lagos being chosen as the venue for this significant event. He believes that, with the support of the people in his Archdiocese and the dedicated team on the organizing committee, the celebration will be a great success.

Archbishop Adewale is also getting ready to welcome all the guests to the Holy Cross Cathedral in Lagos. This stunning cathedral will host the opening and thanksgiving ceremony, which will be broadcast live so that more people can join in the celebration.

As we look forward to this historic event, it’s essential to remember the remarkable work that CEPACS has done over its 50 years of existence. They’ve been instrumental in spreading the Catholic faith and unity across Africa through modern communication tools.  

As the days tick down to the big celebration, excitement is building among both participants and organizers. With its mission deeply rooted in communication and evangelization, CEPACS has much to celebrate, and the event promises to be a momentous occasion for all involved. Stay tuned for updates as we approach this historic milestone in Lagos, Nigeria, from November 18th to 21st, 2023. It’s sure to be a celebration to remember.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
