Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Coast, Ghana


January 10, 2016
The Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Matthias Kobena Nketsiah has ordained nine acolytes into the order of Deacons at St.Matthew’s Parish, Moree in the Archdiocese of Cape Coast. The celebration brought together family members, friends, benefactors and benefactresses of the ordinandi, was attended by many priests and formators.
Delivering the homily, the Archbishop said’ the human body must be used to glorify God because the body is a gift from God, created in his own image and likeness and since Christians have been bought at a high price with the blood of the lamb, the body should not be misused physically.’ He admonished Christians and for that matter every human being to avoid immoral acts such as fornication, co-habitation and gossip.
To the deacons, the Archbishop said they should live a life of purity, celibacy and continuous discernment of the voice of God as Samuel did despite their long years of preparation in the seminary. He urged all the faithful gathered to at least draw a soul to Christ by the close of the year as Philip did in the gospel of the day. 
The deacons were Rev. Felix Quarcoe, Athanasius Affu, Jude Mensah l(Ajumako Bisease), Collins Quaidoo (Dunkwa –On-Offin), Paul Peprah (Moree), Francis Amissah Nyarkoh (Mankessim), Anthony Boadi (Katakyiase Nyankomase), Anthony Arkoh-Baidoo( Twifo Hemang and Martin Essilfie Obeng (Yamoransa). The deacons have since returned to the seminary to complete their formation.
