It is the conviction of Sacramentum Caritatis as
well as the fathers of the Second Vatican Council that
active participation at Eucharistic celebration cannot be
easily disassociated from active involvement in the Church’s
mission in the world. This present study in the light of the
foregoing presuppositions, exposes some of such challenges
confronting the Afro-Igbo Christian, with special focus on
the menace of the osu caste system, and proposes ways
towards its eradication. One of such ways remains
strengthening the Eucharistic celebration through the
process of the inculturation.
