Zaria diocese is a dream comes true. The coat of arm of the diocese is ‘May They be One’
the logo of the diocese has the head gear of the Supreme Pontiff (Pope) at the top with cincture or girdle falling on either side. Inside the cincture is the shape of a heart with the cross right under the Pope’s hat. The cross is the Christian identity. The heart is divided into three parts, like the map of our country Nigeria. We have the Northern knot symbolizing where Zaria is situated.
On the left side of the logo is a silk Cotton Tree. This shows that no matter which route one takes going to Zaria (either from Sokoto or Kano or Jos or Kaduna), one does not arrive Zaria without glaringly seeing the Cotton Trees peculiar to Zaria (Zazzau). This tree could be compared to the mustard seed in the Gospel of Mark 4:26-34. Zaria will continue to grow so that many may find shelter and peace in its branches.
On the right hand in an opened Bible meaning the Word of God is alive and active in the life of the Christians. Zaria is a renowned centre of learning in the world. The Bible which is a book could be associated with knowledge and Zaria is the Northern seat of knowledge.
Eighty five percent (84%) of the colour of the logo is green which is a sign of agriculture and prosperity. Farming is the major occupation of the indigenes of the Diocese of Zaria.

The Director of Social Communications department of Zaria diocese Rev. Fr. Peter Ogwuche has authored another book, titled 'Worship in Spiritual and Truth” barely a year after he authored a book on Catholic doctrines. In an interview, Fr. Ogwuche said the book was about some controversial issues in our Christendom life, such as drinking alcohol, women wearing trousers to church, harvest and baza'ar and so on.
