Father Basil Eruo's full Igbo-language surname is Eruonwokeulo amara ka osiri biris - which in English means, "When you get to a man's house you will get to know him better. Using the shortened form "Eruo," St. Peter's associate pastor is getting to know the parishioners while serving in God's house. And while most people in Jefferson City won't ever get to visit his homeland, Fr. Basil, by making himself at home among them, serves as an ambassador not only for eastern Nigeria but also for the whole Universal Church.
Fr. Basil Eruo came to our parish in July 2015 as a visiting priest from Nigeria. His gift of ordained ministry provides leadership and pastoral guidance to the members of our parish community.
"I love reading the Bible and searching for the meaning of the words and finding the deep meaning beyond what is there in the sentences."
