Accra, 09 December, 2023 / 9:25 pm (ACI Africa).
The new Pastoral Year in the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra is to focus on children Apostolate, the Local Ordinary has directed.
In a statement shared with ACI Africa Wednesday, December 6, Archbishop John Bonaventure Kwofie says that from 2024, “pastoral programmes and activities of all the parishes, rectorates, outstations and institutions of the Archdiocese” shall focus on children.
The theme chosen to guide the programs is, “Helping Children to seek Christ: From Discovery to Discipleship.” John 12:21 - “We wish to see Jesus”, Archbishop Kwofie adds.
He goes on to explain, “The choice of the 2024 theme for the Archdiocese takes into consideration the urgent call to foster the growth of the Catholic Church which was recently made by the Ghana Catholic Bishops' Conference.”
The Ghanaian member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit under the protection of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Spiritans/Holy Ghost Fathers/CSSp.) says he recognizes the effectiveness of children Apostolate in contributing to the growth of the Church.
