Very Rev Fr Godfred Nuba Bondi, a visiting Priest from the Wa Diocese of the Catho­lic Church, in his homily, asked the faithful to take delight in building, “human cathedrals” instead of amass­ing wealth, sometimes at the expense of others.

He advised that as chil­dren of God, they should let their lives be examples for others to emulate, read the word of God diligently, pray fervently and back their faith with action.

“ You cannot impart the word of God to others if you fail to read the Bible. Re­member that it was through the word of God that the world was created and for that reason you should use the word of God as your spiritual armour,” he advised.

He assured the congrega­tion not to entertain fears because the light of God would lead them through the darkness of this world, just as it had led the Israelites through the desert to the promised land.

Very Rev Fr Godfred Bondi urged Christians to rely solely on God to gain salvation, adding that the disciples left what they had and followed Jesus Christ. He, therefore, asked, “ whom are you fol­lowing?

He called on the faithful to pray fervently for the priests and encourage them to move on in their efforts to lead others to Christ.

The outgoing PPC Presi­dent, Mr Edward Adimazoya said his administrationadopt­ed a leadership of integrity, accountability, humility and transparency during its ten­ure, adding that leadership was continuity and was opti­mistic that the new adminis­tration would continue from where they had left off.

Dr Stephen Arthur thanked the congregation for the trust reposed in his team and assured that his administra­tion would at the appropriate time share its vision with the church.
