One of the biggest projects that the Diocese of Ikot Ekpene has undertook is the building of a new diocesan retreat center next to the spiritual year seminary. The project moves forward as money is available. The total cost of the project will be about 1.2 million USD. The retreat center will meet a very serious need within Nigeria for a place that people can gather to grow in their faith. Currently, there are no similar structures in the diocese or in any nearby dioceses.
Enjoy the video tour of the retreat center below as well as the various pictures. If you would like to donate toward the completion of this project, please contact Fr. Gerald Akata.
