It was excitement galore for members of the National Association of Catholic Corps Members (NACC) in Orlu zone of Imo state as the leadership of the zone organised a sendforth party for corps members of 2017/2018 Batch B.
At the ceremony held on Sunday, October 14 at the chapel of the NACC in Orlu, both serving and outgoing members had a funfilled time as they dined and wined.
The outgoing Catholic corps members of the zone had appreciated God’s benevolence at a Thanksgiving Mass earlier that day before the sendforth ceremony kicked off around 2:00pm.
Addressing the apparently joyous members, the Zonal Coordinator of NACC, Orlu zone, Timothy Agbor, welcomed all members and guests who graced the occasion and commended the steadfastness of the outgoing corps members.
Agbor lauded the good conducts of the outgoing corps members during their compulsory service year saying they served their father’s land selflessly and meritoriously.
He charged them to be optimistic of what the future holds, be hardworking and prayerful as they pass out of service.
The zonal coordinator also tasked the outgoing members to always check up on catholic corps members still in service saying the love which they enjoyed should be sustained even out of service.
He therefore appreciated the efforts of the organising committee of the sendforth ceremony.
Speaking on behalf of the outgoing members, Miss Folasade Abey tasked serving Corps members to be up and doing and acquire skills that they could fall back upon since the nation could not guarantee employments for all graduates.
Abey lauded the strides of the leadership of the NACC of Orlu zone saying it has raised the bar in terms of achievement and organisation of the Family House.
The outgoing Catholic corps members were presented with Certificates of Service and gifts.
Other highlights of the programme included presentations, goodwill messages, felicitations, refreshments and dance.
