Catholic Bishops ends Plenary Assembly

The Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (GCBC) has concluded this year’s edition of the Conference’s annual plenary assembly.

The theme for this year’s plenary assembly was “Fratelli Tutti and Covid-19; Pastoral Opportunities and Challenges in Ghana.”

In a Communique issued by the Conference and signed by Most Rev. Philip Naameh, Archbishop of Tamale and President of the GCBC, the bishops “expressed support for the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Bill of 2021.”

“We wish to reaffirm our unflinching support for the bill and further appeal to Ghanaians to support it so that it is passed into law” the statement further added.

The GCBC also commended “the President of the Republic, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his vision and commitment to build a National Cathedral which will serve as a symbol of unity for all Christians and a national place of prayer.”

The Bishops thus urged “all Christians and all well-meaning Ghanaians to contribute generously towards the building of the National Cathedral to the glory of God.”

Other issues discussed in the communique includes “harnessing technology as a pastoral tool”, media sensitization and fake news, free SHS among others.
