Father Damian Ezeani, a priest of the Diocese of Orlu in Nigeria, will arrive in the USA on August 17 and live at Our Lady of Peace. He will begin studying for a masters degree at John Carroll University at the end of August. Born on September 26, 1977 in Urualla, Nigeria he was ordained on August 19, 2006. In addition to his parish duties Father currently serves on the Diocesan Presbyteral Council of Orlu.
Fr. Damian's last name means "king of the land." He comes from the same area and same diocese as Fathers Maurice and Cyriacus and belongs to the same Igbo Tribe.
We all promise to work together to make Father's transition from Nigeria to The United States as painless and as easy as possible.
Father will assist with Masses at Our Lady of Peace and St. Adalbert/OLBS.
