Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Coast, Ghana


January 10, 2016
The Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Matthias Kobena Nketsiah has cut the sod to dedicate a six bedroom house at Ajumako Bisease in the Central Region of Ghana. 
The ceremony which was preceded by a solemn Thanksgiving Mass, brought together all the parishioners in the Outstations and beyond to thank God for his support in the execution of the project. In his homily, Archbishop Nketsiah commended the parishioners and likened them to the Shunemite  woman in the days of the prophet Elisha who convinced her husband to find a place for the Man of God to rest any time he passed through their town (cf 1Kgs 4: 8ff).  He encouraged them to support their priests in their line of duty as shepherds through their prayers and material support. He further exhorted them to live as one family and eschew all forms of bickering and ensure peaceful environment for spiritual growth of the parish. To the youth, the Archbishop admonished them to desist from the desire of travelling out for greener pastures which sometimes turns out to be disastrous for them.

Rev. Fr. Benjamin Baiden, the parish priest said that it had taken them a little over two (2) years to complete the project at a cost of more than GHC 50,000.00. He thanked all who had assisted in many capacities and urged them to continue with their support. According to him, the building was put up to coincide with the climax of the church’s Centenary Anniversary later on in September, 2015. Some dignitaries present at the ceremony were the Deputy Central Regional Minister, Hon. Queenstar Pokua Sawyer, Nananom, the Deputy Registrar-UEW, Ajumako Campus among others.
