Members of the Wa Diocesan Apostolate Team, in collaboration with the Catholic Bishop of Wa, Most Rev. Richard Kuuia Baawobr, M. Afr, successfully organised Bible seminars for all the deaneries in the diocese between May and September this year. The seminars form part of activities to operationalise Pastoral Guidelines of the Second National Pastoral Congress.
It needs to be recalled that the Pastoral Guidelines of the Second National Pastoral Congress, requests all societies of the Church to spend some meeting time on Bible Sharing and contribute to the building of Small Christian Communities ( No. 52-53).
Therefore, to achieve this goal, members of the Wa Diocesan Apostolate Team, held series of trainings in the different four(4) deaneries of the Diocese. These deaneries are Jirapa, Nandom, Wa and Tumu.
The first trainings was held for the Jirapa deanery from 17th – 19th May, 2019 with the Nandom deanery organised from 28th -30th June, 2019. The Wa deanery training session was also held from 26th- 28th July, 2019 whilst the final deanery training session was held for Tumu from 13th- 15th September, 2019.
In all over 100 persons were trained. Those who took part in these trainings were Catechists/ animators, Parish Youth Council Executives and members belonging to Societies and Associations. They were trained on Bible Enthronement, Bible Scan, Bible Study, Bible Sharing and how to build and sustain Small Christian Communities.
Fr. Paul Gaa, the Wa Diocesan Biblical Apostolate Coordinator, who facilitated these trainings with the support of the Bishop, encouraged all participants who benefited from the training to also train their fellow parishioners on the knowledge gained.
