On the Feast day celebration, Archbishop Kwofie asked the members to emulate St. Theresa of the Child Jesus’ virtues of humility, simplicity and self-sacrifice, urging them to train the young ones in the Society for a better future. He said without that the future might be bleak for them.

Obaapanin Gloria Kwasie, the Grand National President, thanked God for giving strength to members to live by the values of their Patron Saint by praying for the Priests and Religious as well as doing “our bit in our own small little ways with extraordinary love in helping the needy in our communities in the footsteps of St. Theresa.”
