Cape Coast, 31 July, 2020 / 10:26 pm (ACI Africa).
A Ghanaian Archbishop has encouraged the making of homes “truly domestic churches” amid COVID-19 restrictions that have made staying at home “very difficult for many.”
In a video message posted on Facebook, Archbishop Charles Palmer-Buckle says, “The time has come for us in the Catholic Church to revive what is called the domestic Church.”
“One of the protocols of these COVID-19 restrictions is that we should stay at home. I know that staying at home has become very difficult for many of us for whom our homes were just a place of sleeping, co-tenancy,” Archbishop Palmer-Buckle explains in the Thursday, July 30 Facebook post.
He says that ““We have been compelled to make our homes really a home where there is love, there is peace, there is joy, there is sharing.”
“I pray that our homes may become truly domestic Churches where a family that prays together stays together,” Archbishop Palmer-Buckle who is the Local Ordinary of Ghana’s Cape Coast Archdiocese implores in the 2.39-minute video message.
