Tamale, 03 August, 2021 / 8:10 pm (ACI Africa).
The newly-launched 10-year strategic plan aimed at accelerating growth and development in Ghana’s Tamale Archdiocese is expected to lay emphasis on the formation of Catholic youth, the Local Ordinary has said.
During the launch, Archbishop Philip Naameh said, “Youth who constitute the majority of the population in the Archdiocese of Tamale face numerous challenges today.”
“Through this plan, we want to give attention and lay emphasis on the formation of the youth to face the challenges of unemployment, insecurity, drug abuse among others,” Archbishop Naameh said during the July 31 event.
The Ghanaian Archbishop added, “What is needed today is a Church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. In the strategic plan, young people through intense training will have a voice and the means to address the social problems that they face.”
“We plan to organize these training workshops in all Parishes, institutions and associations for young people in our Archdiocese during the 10-year period of the plan,” Archbishop Naameh said.
