BOOK REVIEW: Youth Companion: Some Typologies

Johnsmart Ezenwankwor


To those familiar with Bishop Hilary Nanman Dachelem, the work, Youth Companion: Some Typologies, is long overdue. This is because, the history of his priestly duties whose major highlights were highly visible in his duties as seminary and Claretian econome to parish works, have been adorned with dense attention to youth development. As a result of his enormous interest towards youth development during the early years of his ordination, particularly within the periods he worked as Claretian econome, he gathered a lot of young men and women for meaningful engagements rather than idling at home or walking round the streets in the name of looking for admissions to various high institutions of learning or searching for jobs that were not readily available. His efforts birthed the strong musical group known as Claret Singers which today, has metamorphosed into different popular and most sought-after music groups. This level of development among the members of Claret Singers was possible, thanks to his further support while working as a parish priest at St Maria Goretti Catholic Parish Owerri and in Shendam diocese.
