WIAWSO DIOCESE: SEVEN ORDAINED TO THE PRIESTHOOD

 

Bishop Essien with the newly ordained Priests

The Most Reverend Joseph Essien has ordained seven young men to the priesthood for the Catholic Diocese of Wiawso. The Ordination ceremony took place on Sunday, November 15, 2020, at the Immaculate Conception Parish, Enchi.

The prelate in his homily highlighted sacrifice as central to the Catholic Priesthood saying, “the uniqueness of the Catholic priesthood derives from its sacrificial aspect”.
“Priests should learn from Jesus, the High Priest, who offered Himself for the salvation of humankind”, he advised. He further stated that a priest who cannot make meaningful sacrifices cannot be a good priest.

 

He also admonished the newly ordained priests that if the faithful are right to demand quality education, quality health care among others from the government, then they are equally right to demand quality priesthood from the Church.

 

Bishop Essien assured them of God’s constant support in difficult moments and added that they will succeed if they strive to deepen their relationship with God.

 

The seven who were ordained to the priesthood are;

Rev. Fr. Bernard Korsi Avor (St. Francis Xavier Parish, Bonsu Nkwanta)
Rev. Fr. Joseph Cudjoe (St. Agatha Parish, Asafo)
Rev. Fr. Michael Adjei Twene Donkor (St. Joseph Cathedral Parish, Wiawso)
Rev. Fr. Nicholas Kofi Opoku (St. Ambrose Parish, Kwamebikrom)
Rev. Fr. Pius Kwan Afona (Immaculate Conception Rectorate, Atronsu)
Rev. Fr. Sebastian Abare Nyame (Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, Adabokrom)
Rev. Fr. Vincent Afukah Nyame (St. Joseph Parish, Afere).
