The Most Reverend John Bonaventure Kwofie, C.S.Sp., Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, has exhorted newly confirmed Catholics to stand firm and be true soldiers of Jesus Christ. They were given the assignment by Archbishop Kwofie to be devoted to the Catholic Church and constantly defend the Church.
These were said by Archbishop Kwofie in the homily he delivered at the Sacred Heart Parish, Derby Avenue, Accra, during his pastoral visit. Sacred Heart Parish, Derby Avenue, Accra is the oldest Catholic Church in the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra, established on January 31, 1893. The archbishop’s visit forms part of the parish’s 130 years anniversary celebrations.
The archbishop confirmed 150 candidates during the Holy Mass and honoured parishioners who were 70 years of age and above, and who have served the parish all these years.
Archbishop Kwofie encouraged the confirmandi not to leave the Church and that “if I should come back maybe in 10 years time and ask of you and I am told that you have left the Church, I will be sad.”
The Holy Mass was concelebrated by Rev. Frs. Derrick Dowuona-Hammond, Secretary to the Archbishop; Bright John Elorm Fumey, Gabriel Obodai Torgbor, Philip Yaw Bempong and George Paa Nii Brocke, a visiting priest from the Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese. Some religious brothers and Sisters, especially from the Sacred Heart Parish were also present for the holy mass.
