During his sermon at a church sevice at the cenyre, he thanked the Bishops of Awka and Ekwulobia Dioceses, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor and Most Reverend Peter Ebelechukwu Okpalaeke for their tremendous helps for the Catholic faithful at this era of the pandemic and commended the community leaders and those who did the work of Christ by making positive impacts for the vulnerable in their various capacities.

According to him, “I thank the governor of Anambra State, Governor Willie Obiano on his efforts towards ensuring safety of the people in the state, especially during the lockdown which helped to reduce the spread of the disease. The world is in difficult time. Therefore, we should always remember one another and expect our reward from God. I also appreciate those that have shown love to the less privileged across the globe. As you move around, remember to wear your face mask, wash your hands with soap, get sanitised and maintain a good hygiene. It is obvious that our people often doubt about the virus but it is real and has killed a lot of people in the world”.

Rev. Muojeke prayed that the souls of the victims throughout the world may have eternal repose in the Lord and that God may console their families.

He further asked God to direct the leaders in the country that they may do what pleases him as well as have positive impact in the lives of the citizens, adding that Anambra State being the leading state in South East has the affairs of the indigenes to be mostly considered among other budgets in the state and advised the parishioners to join in the group chat of the church via WhatsApp in order to get the necessary information about the activities of the church and avoid gathering.
