    NATIONAL BLACK CATHOLIC HISTORY MONTH

    Catholic Bishops of Nigeria

    The Catholic Church in Nigeria is part of the worldwide Catholic Church,

    under the spiritual leadership of the Pope, the curia in Rome, and the

    Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria. The president of the Bishops

    Conference is Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama (Archbishop of Jos).

    The Latin and Eastern Catholic Churches comprise the world's

    largest Christian Church, and its largest religious grouping. In 2005, there

    were an estimated 19 million baptized Catholics in Nigeria.

    Nigeria, together with Congo Democratic Republic, boasts of the highest

    number of priests in Africa. The boom in vocation to the priesthood in

    Nigeria is mainly in the eastern part (especially among the Igbo ethnic group)

    which accounts for over 70 percent of the country's Catholic population.

    The second papal visit to the country in 1998 witnessed the beatification of

    Blessed Cyprian Michael Iwene Tansi. Pope John Paul II proclaimed him

    blessed at Oba, Onitsha Archdiocese, a local Church established by the

    apostle of eastern Nigerian, Bishop Joseph Shanahan, CSSp.
