ST. BAKHITA CATHOLIC CHURCH CELEBRATES 15TH ANNIVERSARY
Fifteen years ago the seed of St. Bakhita Catholic Church was sown at Old Estates, Koforidua. This seed has grown to become a big tree under whose shade the people of God sit.
The Parishioners and Priests marked this milestone with a monthlong celebration. Among the activities organised were a pilgrimage to the Franciscan Valley of Prayer and Silence, a 5 Days Revival, Memorial Mass for deceased parishioners, a day with the sick and aged and free health screening over the period of the celebration.
The anniversary was climaxed with a Thanksgiving Mass on October 28, 2018 presided over by the Local Ordinary of the diocese, Most Rev. Joseph Afrifah-Agyekum and concelebrated by scores of priests from the diocese.
The bishop as his anniversary gift to the Church, elevated her to the status of a parish through a decree he read out. St. Bakhita Catholic Church now has juridical personality by virtue of the law itself, that is a subject of rights and obligations which accord with her new status ( CIC 515¶3)
After the Mass, the Bishop blessed and commissioned the parish's new and ultramodern Rectory as the anniversary monument.
