About Me

Hi 👋🏽, I am Fr. Emmanuel Ochigbo. I was born and raised in Nigeria. I was ordained a priest for the Catholic Diocese of Idah in Nigeria. Among my many assignments in Nigeria, I was the diocesan chaplain to the Catholic Youth Organization (CYON) and the diocesan music director.
I am currently on mission/studies in the United States. I have a Master’s Degree in Biblical Theology and I am a Board Certified Hospital Chaplain with the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC) USA/Canada.
I love to compose, sing and teach liturgical songs. I have a musical album (Songs of Victory) with eight of my songs, which are now on my YouTube Channel under the name “Fr Emmanuel Ochigbo.” I have also recently released some singles, one of which is Baila Baila, which has gone viral and has inspired a global dance challenge. I love to learn languages and to read/listen to and tell good stories.
This blog is an avenue where I share the texts and videos of my Sunday homilies along with my music and other posts. My goal is to present the gospel message in a way that is understandable, relatable, memorable, and inspiring. May your visit to this page provide answers to your questions, and bring you divine blessings. Amen.
