The Metropolitan Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra, Most Rev. John Bonaventure Kwofie, CSSp, has hosted about one hundred (100) children in his Osu residence. On Wednesday 30 December, 2020, a section of children representing the various deaneries in the Archdiocese of Accra visited the Archbishop to spend quality time with him.
The event which was organized by Radio Angelus’s Children’s Time in His Presence, assembled children from Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Glefe–Dansoman, Corpus Christi Parish, Sakumono and Martyrs of Uganda Parish, Mamprobi. Other children came from the Francophone community, Ashaley Botwe and Margaret-Mary Parish, Dansoman.
The visit offered the children the opportunity to sing Christmas Songs, perform various sketches and recitals. A book filled with hearty messages from the children was also presented to the Archbishop. The children then presented to their shepherd a special picture frame that bore the images of children from the six Deaneries in addition to a creative art work. The children said a Special prayer for the healing of the Archbishop.
