Members of the Good Shepherd Society of Archbishop Vining Memorial Church Cathedral, Anglican Communion, Ikeja, Lagos State, marked the 50th anniversary of the society.

The society which was founded in the church to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ, has positively touched the lives of the less-privileged. The celebration provided an opportunity for new members to be ushered to the altar for induction into the forum.

The officiating minister, Rt. Rev. Manases Okere, prayed for all the members, for a renewal of strength, as they re-dedicated themselves to God. They declared their readiness to promote God’s work and serve humanity better.

They promised to work hard, love and live in peace with all members of the church as well as their neighbours, pledging to avoid anything that would bring disrepute to the body of Jesus Christ.

A new set of patrons, matron and grand patrons were presented before the church and they were decorated with medals of service by the cleric.
