Murdered Seminarian Michael Nnadi

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of 18-year-old Nigerian seminarian, Michael Nnadi, whose body was found on Saturday the 1st of February 2020. Michael had been abducted by unidentified assailants, along with three other seminarians, on 8 January 2020 from the Good Shepherd Seminary in Kaduna in northern Nigeria. The other three seminarians were returned safely but Michael was not. One of the teaching staff at the seminary in Kaduna said: “Michael was a young and gifted seminarian. He was an orphan who had been brought up by his grandmother. Just a few weeks ago, after a year of spiritual preparation, he had been clothed in the soutane. It seems that his only crime was his desire to serve God." 

If you would like to make a donation in memory of Michael Nnadi that will help support the education of other seminarians in Nigeria, you can do so by selecting the appropriate field in the donation form below:
