The Children’s service of the St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church, Weija, earlier this month climaxed this year’s Holy Childhood Week celebration.
The week-long program was themed “Baptized and sent as living witnesses of God’s love to all.”
The climax featured the children wearing their future career apparel and animated it by playing major roles such as singing at Mass.
This was heralded to boost the confidence of the children and encourage them to be hopeful as they study both in school and during their time in Church.
The week’s celebration started off with a Children’s Day event organized by the Kaneshie Deanery Youth Council at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, New Achimota.
The event afforded the children a fair understanding of being celebrated as precious ones in the House of the Lord.
Activities slated for the week also included writing a letter to Jesus, expressing their love to Jesus, praying for their parents and the Country, Eucharistic Adoration, and Coloring of biblical stories.
Kelvin Reimmer, in his climax speech on behalf of the children service, expressed gratitude to the Rector of the church, the Pastoral Council of the church, Animators and their parents for making this year’s week-long celebration a wonderful one.
The Rector of the church, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Salifu, was thankful to the Children’s Service Animators for sacrificing their time in serving the children and commended the Children service for their efforts in animating the Holy Mass, a gesture he urged shouldn’t be once a year.
He encouraged the children to always be ambassadors of Christ Jesus.
