He holds a Licentiate in Sacred Liturgy from the Rome-based Pontifical Institute of St. Anselm and a Master of Science in Educational Administration and Supervision of Instruction.
Before he was appointed Apostolic Administrator, Msgr. Attakruh had served in various positions, including Parish Priest, Director of Vocations, Director of Sacred Liturgy, Director of St. Kizito Pastoral and Catechetical Centre, formator and lecturer at St. Peter’s Regional Seminary in Ghana’s Cape Coast Archdiocese, among other Priestly and pastoral ministries.
In 2015, the Ghanaian Cleric coordinated the first Synod of Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese.
Reacting to his appointment, Msgr. Attakruh expressed appreciation to his predecessors for the foundation they managed to put up in the episcopal see that is located within the Ecclesiastical Province of Cape Coast.
He urged the people of God expected to be under his pastoral care to pray for him and called for a collaborative ministry along with the Religious and members of the Clergy.
“I will only show the path, I will share my vision with you so that it is not only my vision, but it is our vision,” the Bishop-elect said, addressing himself to the Clergy, women and men Religious, and Laity in Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese.
He added, “We are all responsible for this Diocese. It is a responsibility we share.”
When ordained a Bishop, Msgr. Attakruh will serve as the fifth Local Ordinary of the Ghanaian Catholic Diocese that was erected in November 1969.
