A Requiem Mass was offered for
the repose of his soul, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kilburn in
At the Mass, the First Reading was taken from the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 25, and Verses 8-9 and Chapter 26, Verses 3-4. It was read by his son, Nicholas Nkemcho Mormah while the Second Reading was taken from the Book of Romans, Chapter 8, Verses 31-39 and was read by Dr. John Nwokeoha. The Gospel was taken from the Gospel of Saint John, Chapter 11, and Verses 17-27.
In his Homily, the officiating Priest, Reverend Father ANGELO, described Nick Mormah as a man who made his peace with his Creator before he died.
According to Father Angelo, Nick was in great pain during his stay in hospital and had known the end was coming.
He went on to say that Nick had requested his Parish Priest to grant permission to his daughter, Nneka who was preparing to receive her First Holy Communion this Easter, to fast forward the process, to enable him see his daughter receive her First Communion before his (Nick’s) death. The permission was granted and Nneka received the Sacrament of the Eucharist in the Hospital where her father was receiving his treatment.
Another request made by Nick to his Parish Priest, was that he should be given the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, otherwise known as the Last Sacrament. This permission was also given and Nick was given the Last Sacrament, each time he received Holy Communion.
Father Angelo described the late Mormah as a “Man of the People”. He expatiated on this by saying that Nick would go out of his way to help people in distress who came to him for help.
