In a homily centered on Prayer, Bishop Isizoh said that God relates to Christians through a prayer which underlines the need for regular prayer.

The Prelate encouraged parents to root their children in Christ, raise them up according to Gods directive and the tenets of the Church, stating that when good morals are inculcated in them, the society will be a better place.
Most Reverend Isizoh charged the candidates to be soldiers of Christ, avoid immorality and always reflect the light of God in their daily activities, adding that they should always pray for forgiveness and go for confession whenever they go astray.
The Vicar of the Church, Very Reverend Father Dr Martin Onukwuba said that the visit was of great importance as so many souls have been converted , charging the newly confirmed to always wear the amour of good conduct and win souls for Christ as his foot soldiers.
