The Catholic Men Organisation (CMO) is one of the four major organisations in the Church, the others being Catholic Women Organisation (CWO), Nigerian Federation of Catholic Students (NFCS) and Holy Childhood Association. The CMO is the pillar of the Church and as its motto, “Christ is our Leader” provides exemplary leadership in the Church. Members of the CMO are heads of their various families and understand the need to plan for every member of the family. Since 2006 when the first International father’s Day celebration took place in St Paul, children and students have played a key role. They have entertained the Parish with traditional dance displays, and had essay-writing competitions in 2007 and 2021. In addition, three undergraduate students enjoyed scholarship awards in 2021. Of course, the focus on students and children is not surprising since St. Paul is a predominantly student parish otherwise usually referred to as the Wisdom Parish.
