The Roman Catholic Diocese of Ho, on the 28th of December 2023, ordained five ‘Transitory’ Deacons.
They are Rev. James Gadasu, Rev. Paul Zigah both from St. Joseph Parish Liati, Rev. Augustine Osei from St. Mary’s Parish Likpe Abrani,
The rest are Rev. Juliano Adignon Kokou Yehadji from St. Stephen Parish, Kpetoe and Rev. Daniel Tettegah from Sacred Heart Fodome.
The ordaining bishop, Most Rev. Anthony Kwame Adanuty, Bishop Emeritus of Keta Akatsi Diocese in a homily at the Bishop Holland Centre in Sokode Gborgame where this memorable event took place, called on the newly ordained deacons to be men of good reputation, filled with wisdom and the Holy Spirit.
Bishop Emeritus Adanuty urged the deacons to demonstrate before God and humanity that they are above every suspicion of blame and be true ministers of Christ and men firmly rooted in faith and in love.
He further urged the deacons to assist the Bishop and his body of Priests as ministers of the Word and the Sacraments before their final ordination into the Ministerial Priesthood.
The newly ordained Deacons expressed their heartfelt appreciation to the bishop, their parish priests, formators, their brother seminarians, their parents and the entire faithful for their prayers and support throughout their formative years.
