About Us

We are Christ Faithful in the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto. Through Baptism we are called to be one in the Spirit of peace and love as members of the community of faith established by Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We proclaim and witness to the good news of salvation. United with the Holiness, the Pope and our Local Ordinary, we live the mission of Jesus through faithfulness to his gospel as understood and taught by the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

With God's grace and blessings, we commit ourselves to work toward a more full realization of God’s reign on earth, by celebrating Christ’s presence in worship and sacrament, by teaching and serving, by building up community and by fostering justice through prayer and action.
