The Minor Seminary is a nursery for nurturing vocations to the priesthood. In this task of nurturing vocations, various agents are called to action. In the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Pastores Dabo Vobis, Pope St. John Paull II identifies the Parish community as one of such agents. He urges the parish community to “continue to feel that the young man on his way to the priesthood is a living part of itself; it should accompany him with its prayer, … offer him suitable opportunities and strong encouragement to try out his vocation for the priestly mission”. (#68)
The St. George Cathedral Parish has recently heeded to this invitation by the Pope in a more magnificent way. The Parish Pastoral Council, on behalf of the Cathedral Parish, paid a visit to young Seminarians of the Pope John Minor Seminary at Effiduase-Koforidua. After interacting with them and offering pieces of advice and encouragement, they made a cash donation of an undisclosed amount. They also donated food items and assorted provisions to support their daily needs. The Cathedral Administrator, V. Rev. Fr. Felix Davordzi, hinted that the donation was a fruit borne out of contributions made by parishioners from their 2015 Lenten observance of alms giving.
Receiving the items on the Seminary’s behalf, Msgr. Francis Twum-Barimah, Rector of the Seminary thanked the Cathedral Parish for their kind gesture and called on other parishes and benefactors to emulate.
