The Oti Regional Minister, Hon Joshua Makubu, has called on the Church in Ghana to adopt an inclusive approach to religious vocations in the country.
Delivering an address during the Climax Mass of the 140th-anniversary celebrations of the Ghana Province of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA), in Elmina on December 30, the Minister emphasized the need for diversity within the religious community, particularly advocating for the inclusion of individuals with disabilities.
According to the Minister, it is time to have persons with disabilities as religious men and women because they too are called by God. He noted that, it is expedient to make arrangements to accommodate such persons.
“I also stand here in the name of persons with disabilities. After 140 years in Ghana, the question is when are we going to see the first Religious Sister with a disability? Without that, we may be made to feel that God doesn’t call us. But I am sure if we look through, God calls us, and maybe we just need to make heed to it and make provisions to accommodate us on grounds of our special needs,” the Minister said.
