Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Accra, Most Rev. John Kobina Louis has called for a change in the teaching methods of Catechesis in the country.
According to the Bishop, Priests and Catechists need to adopt a more effective approach to teaching catechesis in order to curb the dwindling number of Catholics in the country.
The Bishop was addressing a gathering of Catechists at this year’s Catechists’ Day Celebration at the St. Bakhita Catholic Church, Lashibi-Accra on August 26.
The call is coming at a time when the Ghana Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference is expressing concern about the “dwindling number of Catholics” in the West African nation.
In their message ahead of Christmas 2022, members of the Conference described the situation as “alarming” and attributed it to “many external and internal factors”.
Bishop Louis is of the conviction that adopting a Bible-based approach to catechesis is one of the many ways the Church can internally tackle the menace.
