On the serene morning of April 22nd, 2024, the Holy Ghost Cathedral in Enugu stood as a solemn witness to a poignant occasion—the Pontifical Mass in honor of Engr. Hugo Olz, a revered figure in the Catholic Diocese of Enugu. Led by His Lordship C.V.C Onaga, the atmosphere inside the cathedral was one of reverence and reflection.

With sunlight casting a gentle glow upon the assembled mourners, Bishop Onaga, dressed in sacred vestments, guided the congregation through the rituals of the Mass, offering comfort through timeless prayers. His presence was a beacon of spiritual reassurance amid the somber proceedings.

The homily, delivered by Very Rev. Msgr. Prof. Obiora Ike an international icon of peace, eloquently painted a vivid portrait of Engr. Hugo Olz—as a man of humility, generosity, and unstoppable drive of faith, belief in human and community development. Msgr. Prof. Obiora Ike further illuminated the virtues that defined Engr. Olz's life, inviting those present to cherish his memory and emulate his example.

As Msgr. Prof. Obiora Ike went on with the eulogy memories of Engr. Hugo Olz echoed through the cathedral and filled the hearts of the gathered mourners, weaving a tapestry of shared recollection and shared grief. Yet, amidst the tears, there was also a sense of hope—a belief that Engr. Olz's spirit would live on in the hearts of those he had touched.

Outside the cathedral, beneath the open sky, mourners bid farewell to their beloved friend and benefactor. But even as they parted ways, they carried with them the enduring legacy of Engr. Hugo Olz—a legacy of kindness, compassion and unwavering generosity.

In the quiet moments that followed, as day turned to dusk, the memory of the Pontifical Mass lingered—a testament to the power of faith to provide solace in times of sorrow, and a reminder that love endures beyond the bounds of mortality.

Rest in peace, Engr. Hugo Olz.
