“LET US REVIVE THE SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION” VERY REV. FR. ATTAKRUH

Very Reverend Father John Baptist Attakruh, the Apostolic Administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi has called on Catholics to “revive their love and frequency to the Sacraments especially the Sacrament of Confession.”

According to him, “it is disheartening that many are those who have abandoned the Sacraments, especially confession. The Sacrament of Confession is a source of healing. Through the Sacrament of Confession, God heals us, grants us courage, wisdom, and a renewed strength to lead a life pleasing to God. It is a Sacrament of restoration to Grace lost due to sin.”

The Apostolic Administrator further added that “Through our baptism, we have been called to imitate Jesus Christ and lead lives worthy of emulation by others. If our lives will become a shining example to the world, we need to consistently strive daily to imitate Christ in our thoughts, words, and actions.”

“The Sacraments are the means through which God pours His grace abundantly on us. Let us not allow the daily struggles of life to draw us away from these treasures instituted by Christ Himself for His Church.”

He made these remarks while delivering his homily at Mass during a Pastoral Visit to the St. John the Evangelist Parish, Apowa.

Addressing the Parishioners, he asked them to continue praying for the full recovery of Archbishop Kwofie, whom he described as “one of our own” since he hails from Apowa and not long ago was the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi until he was appointed the Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra.

As part of the Apostolic Administrator’s visit to the Parish, about 30 catechumens receive their first Communion.

The Mass was concelebrated by Reverend Father Anthony Andrew Dadzie, Parish Priest of St. John the Evangelist Parish, Apowa.
