He said, the purpose of this   press conference is to draw attention to the programmes line up for the celebration which commenced with special programme (a) Ajase in Republic of Benin where Pastor founder Prophet SBJ got the mandate called ‘Luli’ a grace ,preparing and empowering Papa Oshoffa for the task ahead. , However the real commissioning was on 29th of September 1947 when he was visited by divine being to activate the great commission as spelt out in section 24 of CCC constitution and also to  intimate the public on the journey so far and programmes to mark the auspicious event .

It was gathered that 30th years later,on a trance, papa Oshoffa was lifted up and met with the Holy Mother ( Holy Mary on 15th July 2017 during, which the holy mother pointed  the child she was holding I her hands and gave papa Oshoffa a song and directed him to pass the message to the whole world.

The founder ordered  that  the day should be set aside as a special day  for the recognition and celebration of holy Mary at all parishes  world wide  and thus Papa directed that first Friday of the 7th month of the year be set aside as Holy Mary day thus the  first Holy Mary celebration was 7th July ,1978 which was 39 years ago .it is therefore important not  to underscore the significant  fact that this year event is divinely arranged to fall on the 7th day of the 7th month of the year 2017 as was experienced at the maiden edition of the Holy Mary service 07/07/1978.

However, some of the parishioners who spoke with Salvo, called for sound and proper restructure of the fold with good management team.  The Pastor office has to be respected and the shepherds must be called l to order. The doctrine and tents of the fold must be practice accordingly.

Others, said paying monthly due to the international Headquarters has to be observed because it has a lot of significant. Also many shepherds, should be cautioned who personal lay alter with out any single authorization by the Pastor and that is the reason why there is no single discipline, and respect to the tents and the doctrine  of the fold .

Meanwhile the anniversary thanksgiving will take place at Imeko City the Jerusalem of all celestian on the 29th September this year.

All celestial in diasporas are expected to join in the celebration.
