St John of God Catholic Church celebrates Feast Day

Guided by the axiom that a nation which does not honour its heroes is not worth dying for, the St John of God Catholic Church at Amrahia in the Adentan Municipality has marked its 16th feast day by honouring past church executives.

Running through the citations, the church expressed her gratitude to the recipients for their invaluable, dedicated and selfless services they had rendered to the church.

In his homily,Very Rev Fr Emmanuel Obeng Cudjoe, called on Christians to put their trust in God no matter the difficulties and challenges they faced,adding that the Israelites went through series of problems in the desert in order to take possession of the promised land.

He asked Christians to put their hope in God since he would not fail them. ” Each person has been given an assignment by God to accomplish on earth. Once you are alive, know that you are precious in the sight of God and He who is faithful will not disappoint you, provided you trust in him,” he assured.

Very Rev Fr Obeng Cudjoe said God who worked in mysterious ways, caused Pharaoh’s daughter to save the baby Moses when his father sought to kill all the first-born male babies of the Israelites.

He advised Christians not to grumble when confronted with challenges but put their hope in God.

A former Chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC),Mr David Combat who gave a brief history of how the church started, praised those who had contributed in diverse ways to the formation of the church.
