Monrovia, 16 June, 2021 / 7:35 pm (ACI Africa).
The leadership of the Catholic charity organization, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), is set offer Mass stipend to the Priests serving at Liberia’s only Major Seminary.
In a Tuesday, June 15 report, ACN leadership says the Mass stipend will go a long way in meeting the needs of the formators at St. Paul’s College in Gbarnga who have fulltime responsibilities at the Catholic institution.
“They are paid only a very paltry salary, and have no time to earn a little extra through other activities, such as serving in the parishes, since their work in nurturing the spiritual and intellectual growth of their students demands the fullest possible attention and commitment,” ACN officials say.
They add that the formators are not only charged with the duty of equipping the Seminarians with the appropriate academic training to proclaim the Catholic faith, but also support and safeguard the students' spiritual and human development.
