The sod-cutting ceremony was witnessed by priests and religious from the Archdiocese, as well as well-wishers from far and near.
The Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Accra, Very Rev. Fr. John Kobina Louis, in presenting the project review said that the pediatric hospital which is the first of the project would cost about two (2) million dollars, and therefore, he is calling on all and sundry to contribute their quota for the fulfillment of this good course.
The Archbishop, Most Rev.

Some of the projects which fall under the Legacy of Hope projects include completion of the Youth Center, Priests’ Retirement Home, Archdiocesan Secretariat, Completion of the Catechetical Center, Catholic Cemetery, and Cathedral Restoration.
