Baptism and Fathers Day thanksgiving Service

Dear Fellow Anglicans:

Following are the announcements for this July 12 Igbo Anglican Worship in San Jose. The service will start at12:00 noon prompt at St James Anglican Church, 1565 Lincoln Ave. San Jose CA. Please share this information with everyone. Note that our services are usually time certain because the facility is heavily scheduled.

Several events will take place in this service: 1) Fathers will be honored for the belated Fathers’ Day service which they missed because of our scheduling, 2) there will be baptismal/dedication ceremony, and 3) there will be a holy communion event.

All fathers will be performing in songs, dancing and words of wisdom to the Church. Fathers are requested to arrive about 20 minutes early to do rehearsals before the service starts. They may bring their musical instruments and choice songs.


Please find below the selected songs that children should learn for the service. The songs can be heard in the attached file. Parents are urged to help their children learn these Igbo songs. Although the English versions of the songs are also given here, only the Igbo versions will be sung in church.


The two selected songs for this service are:

Song #1 (Igbo):

Ọṅụ ọṅụ ọṅụ,

Ọṅụ mgbe nile,

N’ime Jisọs

Ọṅụ dịya mgbe nile




English Version:

Joy Joy Joy

Joy Everyday

In Jesus

Oh, there is joy



Song #2 (Igbo):

Jesus Christ hurum na anya,

akwukwo nso gwaram o tua

umu nta bukwa nke ya,

ha adighi ike ma o di ike.

Koros: – O hurum na anya,

O hurum na anya,

O hurum na anya

akwukwo nso gwaram otua.


English Version:
Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak but He is strong.

Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so.

There will be a lunch social after the service. All attending fathers are expected to be at the social to be recognized.


We are also still looking for folks who can play instruments especially piano and/or organ. Other types of instruments are also welcomed especially for the choir. Also let us know if you want to serve on committees. If you have a home-bound or hospitalized sick person, let us know so we can visit and/or pray for them.


Parking space is available at next door Willow Glen Elementary School, 1425 Lincoln Ave, San Jose. Street parking is also available.


For more information about these announcements or any other matters, please contact Brother Innocent Umunna who is copied here. You may also call him at: (831) 269-4288. If you need prayer for any thing, please let him know when you contact him so that we will pray for you. We look forward to seeing you at the Igbo Church service on July 12.
