Contact Details of All NACC Chapters in Nigeria

NACC stands for National Association of Catholic Corps Members. It is the umbrella Christian association for all Nigerian Christian Corpers of the Roman Catholic Faith, the protestant, inter-denominational, non-denominational version being the NCCF, which stands for Nigeria Christian Corpers Fellowship.

COMPREHENSIVE HISTORY OF THE NACC

The National Association of Catholic Corps Members (NACC) was established with the aim of bringing all the serving Nigerian corps members of the Roman Catholic Faith under one unifying umbrella body.

In February 1982, the organization was established under the distinguished leadership and guidance of The Most Rev. Dr. Gabriel Gonsum Ganaka, late Archbishop of Jos, Plateau State.

His original plan for establishing the association was to bring all Roman Catholic Corps Members serving the country in the old Plateau State under one unifying body to be directly supervised by a Parish Priest.

As at the time of establishment, the organization was originally known as Association of Catholic Corpers, ACC, and operated only in Jos, Plateau State.

With the passage of time, the association spread its tentacles to other neighbouring States in the country. Thus, by the middle 90’s, the organization had spread to virtually all parts of the federation, giving it a national status.

On December 2, 2008, The NACC was officially recognized and approved by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN and in the process, Rev. Fr. Celsus Daklong of the Catholic Diocese of Shendam was appointed National Chaplain to oversee Corp Members.

At the inception of the NACC, Archbishop Gabriel Gonsum Ganaka donated the land for which the building of the body’s National Secretariat was to be erected.

The foundation stone laying ceremony of the organization’s secretariat was conducted by Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama, Archbishop Emeritus of Jos in 2003.

The NACC is the fourth recognized youth organization in the youth apostolate of the Roman Catholic Church in Nigeria and it works closely with the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria CSN.

The NACC, together with the Catholic Youth Organization of Nigeria, CYON, Nigeria Federation of Catholic Students, NFCS and the Young Catholic Students of Nigeria, YCSN functions directly under the secretary of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria Youth Committee.

The CBCN Youth Committee is overseen by a Bishop to whom all youth organizations in the Catholic Church report to.

NACC participates in the first plenary session of the CBCN, it is at this session that the organization presents its yearly reports and subsequent plans for the future.
