(Bishop Attakruh blessing the congregation during recession)

Most Rev.  John Baptist Attakruh, has called for the prayers of the faithful of Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese to enable him discharge his duties as Bishop faithfully.
Bishop Attakruh made this call whilst delivery the homily during a  Thanksgiving Mass for him as the fifth Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi. The Mass was held at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish at Aboso.
Bishop Attakruh was born in Juabo in the Amanfi Central District of the Western Region. However, he grew up in Aboso. He shared fond memories of his childhood with the congregation.
According to him, on September 22,  1972 whiles returning from the farm, he forced his mum to take him to Fr. Baidoo,  then Parish Priest of Tarkwa and that visit eventually set him off on his Seminary formation.
“Today, I am grateful to you,  my family for your  unflinching support throughout my Seminary years and even as Priest . I wish my parents were around to see what their hard work has yielded’ he said.
Bishop Attakruh said “the gift of the Episcopate was for service. The call to serve comes with a great responsibility. There is therefore the need for all of us  to also sacrifice to support God’s work and the Church.”
Rev. Fr. Felix Afful,  the Parish Priest, in his welcome address was full gratitude to the people of Aboso for their love and support for the Church.
The Thanksgiving Mass was concelebrated by Very Rev Fr Francis Kofi Lemaire (Vicar General), Very Rev. Fr. Francis Siriboe (Dean, Tarkwa  Deanery), Rev.  Msgr James Margaret Mesu,  as well as Rev. Frs. Vincent Dan Teiko, Marcus Ernin,  James Robbinson, Edward  Cudjoe , Anthony K.  Quarm and Benjamin Doughan ( Bishop’s Secretary). Also present were some Traditional Leaders.
