JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – FRANCIS John has been elected the first Nigerian-American to chair the St. Matthew Apostle Parish Pastoral Council.
Previously, he had been elected the first Nigerian-American to the council since the inception of the church in 1964.
John replaces Clare Larkin, who recently resigned.
Speaking from Kansas City, he paid tribute to the church for the election.
He assured the church of increasing his knowledge, skills and abilities as prescribed by the Catholic Church.
In a related development, John has been Certified Worthy Sir Knight at The Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree at Exemplification and Banquet.
Since being in United States, John has successfully worked with many Reverend Fathers, that embraced and encouraged him in the practice of the faith.
By both achievements, he has attained his peak at the church and will continue to offer his committed passion to charitable services; veterans, seniors and people with disabilities, including Africa Pencil Pyramid.
John is Executive Director of HOPe Africa, the US-headquartered non-governmental organisation registered with global agencies such as the United Nations.
