Bishop commends donors of awards/scholarships to the youths
Youth is a very crucial stage in the life of every individual, as it can be referred to as the decision making stage. The Lord Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Samuel Olubayo Sowale, has always shown concern about the spiritual life and education of the youths in our Diocese, because what an individual will be in life is decided from this stage. The youths, according to the Lord Bishop, are generally indispensable in the Church, and thus the Yoruba proverb that says “if youths are not taught how to worship, the worship is bound to go into extinct”.

Some Students of Bishop Falope Memorial Secondary School receiving their scholarship grant from Chief Fayemiwo during the Synod at Cathedral Church of St John, Iloro-Ilesa.

The Lord Bishop has always charged the youths as Paul told Timothy, a younger man in faith, “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12). To this end, The Lord Bishop, at the closing of the 2nd Session of the 14th Synod of our Diocese, while requesting for more, appreciated the donors of various awards/scholarship towards the education of the youths in our Diocese:

  1. Late Hon. Justice Kayode Eso’s Foundation – Youth in the Law School
  2. Late Ven. Banjo Osewa’s Scholarship – Clergy Children at the final year in the University.
  3. Late Justice Ekundayo Kolawole’s Award –
  4. Ven. Jacob Moyinlorun Ajayi’s Award – Indigent but brilliant student at Bishop Falope Memorial Secondary School, Iyemogun Road, Ilesa.
