THE Kaneshie Deanery of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) has held its first deanery conference in Accra.
The conference, dubbed “You shall receive power and become my witness (Act 1:8)”, was attended by all CCR members under the Kaneshie Catholic Deanery.
Welcoming the participants, Chief Superintendent Rev. Father George Arthur, parish priest of St. George Catholic Church at the Police Depot in Accra, entreated all religious organisations and individuals to pray and join the fight against same sex marriage in Ghana so as to escape the wrath of God.
“Same sex marriage is a deviation and diversion from the teachings of scripture and very unnatural,” he said, and added “until people desist from such acts, the Catholic Church would continue its campaign against it”.
Rev. Father Arthur said the conference was very necessary because when people met in the name of God; their intentions were to pray for prosperity, peace, and breakthrough for the welfare of people.
He requested, as is the intention of the Catholic Church for this month, a prayer for the poor, needy and those marginalised in society.
“In these times of unbearable economic hardship in Ghana, let us pray to the Almighty God for a breakthrough, not forgetting our political leaders that the Lord will guide and enlighten them to lead Ghana to prosperity”, he said.
“Pray for the Holy Father the Pope, the Catholic Church and mother Ghana so that we will all know peace,” he added.
Mrs. Philomena Nortey, speaking on the theme, ‘Be a living witness for Christ’, admonished Christians to let their lives be a witness to Christ by following what the scripture teaches.
“As Christians, you are the Bible for the unbeliever, so you must let the Holy Spirit control your hearts so that your character will help win souls into the Christian fraternity,” she said
