WATERTOWN, MA (May 17, 2012) -Sister Joanna Okereke, HHCJ, to Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network

On Tuesday, May 22, 2012, Sister Joanna Okereke will appear on CatholicTV Network's nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day to discuss the upcoming African National Eucharistic Congress.

The National Association of African Catholics in the US (NAACUS) and the African Conference of Catholic Clergy and Religious in the US (ACCCRUS) in collaboration with the USCCB Secretariat for Cultural Diversity in the Church are convening the second African National Eucharistic Congress (ANEC) to gather African Catholics in the US to reflect on "The Eucharist as our nourishment: Catalyst for Unity, Justice and Peace for African Catholics as new Migrants in the US." The Congress will be held at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, Bethesda, Maryland in the Archdiocese of Washington.

It is inspired by celebrations of the 120th Anniversary of Rerum Novarum of Pope Leo XIII and the influx of New Migrants from Africa in the USA. The objectives are to gather African Catholic newcomers to experience mutual support and renewal of their life of faith and their cultural values, which they can then bring back to their dioceses and share in their various homes and ministries and to provide an opportunity for African Catholics in the US to reflect on topics relevant to their faith, presence and role in the Church in the US that has welcomed them.

This Eucharistic Congress is open to all Africans, their families, and brothers and sisters from other ethnic groups to pray in unity, and solidify and ground our spirituality in the Church, to celebrate our faith and join in the journey of evangelization.

Planner of the event, Sister Joanna Okereke will appear on CatholicTV to discuss the event. The Congress will be held on August 2-3, 2012. This is the Day can be seen on CatholicTV and
