This is my story
My name is Rev Fr. Anthony Nwoko, SDV. I was born on the 12th of February 1974 in Imo State, Nigeria. I started my journey to the priesthood and religious life as an altar boy for many years and after my college I joined the religious congregation of the Society of Divine Vocations (Vocationist Fathers) in 1994.
My academic and formative journey led me through Claretian Institute of Philosophy, Owerri in Imo State (Nigeria) as well as Saints Peter and Paul Major Seminary, Bodija Ibadan (Nigeria). I was ordained a priest by the late Bishop Victor A. Chikwe. For many years after my ordination I have served as a formator in the Society of Divine Vocations, an unforgettable experience that formed and shaped my future.
Presently, I am the parish priest and administrator of Saint Patrick parish, Carbonear as well as Saint Alphonsus parish, Whitbourne in the Diocese of Grand Falls, Newfoundland.
By obedience, I serve as the Regional Superior of the Vocationist missions in Canada.
