Keta-Akatsi, 16 January, 2020 / 1:32 am (ACI Africa).
At the launch of celebrations to mark 25 years since the establishment of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Tetekope in Ghana’s Keta-Akatsi diocese, Church leaders have encouraged Christians to take up the task of evangelizing as a mandate of all the baptized who are followers of Christ.
“The Catholic Church exists to evangelize hence it is not a matter of free choice for the Church but a responsibility of all,” said the Parish Priest of St. Anthony of Padua, Fr. James Mikado while presiding over Holy Mass to mark the start the silver jubilee celebrations of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Tetekope.
“Fervently pray for God’s supplication as well as the renewal of the missionary zeal by extending your spirituality to other people,” the Cleric urged the Christians during the Sunday, January 12 event.
He further called on the Christian faithful “to get rooted in the power beneath the baptism received as Catholics."
“Let your faith blossom,” the Ghanaian cleric emphasized.
