The Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle has said the 1992 constitution of Ghana is the blueprint of moral vision that emanates from Jesus Christ. Hence, should not be taken for granted.
According to the prelate, one of the ways to ensure a moral vision is for managers of educational institutions in Ghana to integrate faith formation and formal education in a bid to produce citizens who are morally sound for national development.
The Archbishop speaking on the theme, “Moral Vision and National Development – The Catholic Church Perspective,” at the 2023 All Ministers Conference, a non-denominational gathering of Ghanaian church leaders at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh said the move would leave a lasting legacy for the next generation.
“Education of the head, the heart and the hands ought to be inseparable and indispensable. It must rather be aligned to ensure that the holistic development and formation of citizens is in line with the kingdom of God and its principles,” the Archbishop said.
Sharing lessons and best practices from the Catholic church’s perspective on building a morally sound nation, Archbishop Palmer-Buckle said that the Catholic church undertakes the grooming of individuals for Christ-like leadership in all the various aspects of human endeavours.
Stressing that “The light of Christ that we bear should enlighten the darkness in our lives as leaders of the Christian population in Ghana. Our yeast should proactively be empowering of all circumstances of those entrusted to us.”
