Member of Parliament for Hohoe Constituency and Minister of Railways Development, John-Peter Amewu has fulfilled a promise he made to St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Hohoe.
The MP at the 120th-anniversary climax Mass of the church community on September 24 promised to donate a pick-up to address the transportation needs of the parish.
Mr. Amewu acted on his promise on September 25, a day after his promise by donating the pick-up on behalf of the Clarible-Esther Foundation.
The MP at the Climax Mass said the dedication, belief and spiritual steadfastness of outstanding priests and individuals of the church had led to the growth of the Church. He said the contributions of the Church over the years could not be overemphasized adding that “the unwavering commitment to our fraternity, spirit and well-being is unquestionable”.
Established in 1902, the Church has seen many developments spiritually, socially, and economically which many are proud of. The Church in its quest for the education of the population, was instrumental in establishing the St. Francis and St. Teresa’s Colleges of Education and the Gbi Central Boys School.
