Giving the homily, the presiding Priest of St. Mulumba Catholic Church, Umuye Ihiechiowa, Ven. Rev. Father Jude Njoku extolled the good works of Iyom Jesus describing her as an exemplary Christian who served God and humanity and enjoined the living to lead an exemplary life, praying for the peaceful repose of her soul.

The homily which emphasised on resurrection to eternal life after death, stressed the importance of living a life not just worthy of emulation but of inheriting the kingdom of God.
