Welcome Fr. Martins Ebuka Ugwu.
I was born in Nigeria and come from a family of 6 children. After my schooling I graduated with a Bachelor's Degrees in Philosophy and Theology from Saint Augustine's Major Seminary (2005 -2013) and was ordinated a Priest on 18th July 2014.
After my ordination, I had a cumulative time of working in both secondary schools and parishes that amounted to about six years and a few months before I came over to Ireland on the 4th of December, 2020 and was warmly received by the good people of Ireland. I am now studying for my Master's Degree in Scriptures (Biblical Theology).
My hobbies include: Table tennis, Badminton, Singing & Learning practical things

Unfortunately due to Covid 19 these cannot be accepted at this time and we ask that you please refrain from leaving any items in or outside the Oratory. Thank you for your understanding.
