The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu (AMEN), Father Ejike Mbaka has shut down the ministry till June 10, 2021 after he must have returned from a private prayer retreat.
The shutting down of the ministry is coming after his followers desecrated the Catholic Cathedral in Enugu and destroyed the Bishop’s residence on rumours of Mbaka’s disappearance last week.
Mbaka, in a release he personally signed, and made available to the media by his Media team on Tuesday morning, said he would be embarking on private prayer retreat for penance and atonement.
It would be recalled that Fr Mbaka had on Sunday apologised to the Catholic Church in Enugu and his Bishop for the desecration of the church.
The statement reads in part: “Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability.
“Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”
