The 2019 plenary assembly of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference under the theme “Baptised and Sent: Living Our mission in Ghana today” has opened in the Archdiocese of Cape Coast with a focus on reflecting on the mission of the church so far: challenges and achievements.
The session which commenced on Friday, November 8, 2019 is expected to come to a close on November,16th, 2019.
Key outtakes from the conference so far is the call for parents to take up the responsibility of educating their children about sexuality to prevent the issue of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in schools and also reminded those in attendance of Christ’s mandate to the church to ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations’ as championed by the president of the Bishops’ Conference and Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale, Most Rev. Philip Naameh.
Addressing the 2019 plenary assembly of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Cape Coast, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale asked parents to rise up and provide a proper parental role in the lives of their children.
There was also an event at Borgia Thomas hall, OLA, Cape Coast earlier today with leaders of other church denominations and Alhaji Yussif Kamage, Imam of Cape Coast in attendance.
The annual plenary assembly brings Bishops together in one space to deliberate on issues and reflect on happenings in the country and suggest ways forward.
