Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Jasikan, Ghana, Most Rev. Gabriel Akwasi Ababio Mante has been discharged from the 37 Military Hospital in Accra where he was receiving treatment.
Catholic Trends sources in the Jasikan Diocese say the Bishop was discharged about a week ago, in good health and responding positively.
This development comes after Catholic Trends reported on May 22 the absence of Bishop Mante at this year’s Ad Limina Visit to Rome.
The report said “Catholic Trends correspondent in Rome reports that the Bishop of Jasikan Diocese in Ghana, Most Rev. Gabriel Akwasi Ababio Mante is not with his brother Bishops on their Ad Limina visit.
Catholic Trends sources indicate that the Bishop has taken ill and is receiving treatment in a hospital in his home country Ghana.”
Most Rev. Gabriel Akwasi Ababio Mante has been the Bishop of the Jasikan Diocese since its inception in December 1994.
He was born on 27th July 1947 in Nkonya Ahenkro where he had his elementary and GCE O & A level before proceeding to the Major seminary for his formative years.
He was ordained a priest on the 2nd July, 1977 in Nkonya where he began his pastoral years. He furthered his studies in Theology in Rome and was later consecrated as a Bishop on 28th May 1995.
Call for prayer for healing
Catholic Trends is by this medium calling for prayers for Bishop Mante and all Bishops, retired Bishops and priests as well as the faithful battling ill health. May God our healer come through for them. Amen.
