Nsukka, which is a town I grew up in, is a university town with an international flair. It is located in the Eastern part of Nigeria in Enugu state. Growing up, my family and I worshipped at St. Peter’s Chaplaincy within the University. At a typical liturgy, you would find people from America, Asia and Europe affiliated with the university.
When we started our Lenten Season, on February 26th, little did I/we know the transformation I/we would experience. What began for me as a hospital chaplain, touching hundreds of foreheads with the signing of the cross on Ash Wednesday, ended with me not being able to touch even the people I live with and love.
