Bishop Attakruh Encourages Christians to hold fast to their faith

The Most Rev. John Baptist Attakruh, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi and Chairman of the Governing Council of Holy Child College of Education in Takoradi, has urged Christians to hold fast to their faith during his maiden pastoral visit to the college on Sunday, September 17, 2023. During this visit, seventeen students received the Sacrament of Confirmation.

In addition to emphasizing the importance of unwavering Christian conviction, Bishop Attakruh also addressed the declining Catholic population in the nation, urging the faithful to remain steadfast. He called for unity, peace, and academic growth, echoing a message that resonated with both students and staff. Furthermore, he extended blessings from Pope Francis to the Holy Child community, marking his first assignment following his attendance at the 2023 orientation program for new bishops.

Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Dolphyne, the College Chaplain, expressed immense joy and reverence for the Bishop’s presence, highlighting the significance of the visit, which included the celebration of Holy Mass and the sacrament of confirmation for 17 students.

Dr. Francis Hull Adams, the Principal of Holy Child College of Education, expressed gratitude for Bishop Attakruh’s leadership as Chairman of the Governing Council, acknowledging its positive impact on the college’s peace and progress. The college has excelled in spiritual development, academics, mentorship, discipline, and sports, with recent academic performance reaching impressive heights. Dr. Adams also noted the college’s involvement in the Transforming Teacher Education and Learning (T-TEL) initiative while addressing challenges, including the urgent need for furniture for the auditorium and offices. He thanked the Bishop, Chaplain, and the entire college community for their support and expressed hope for the college’s continued success.

The celebration was attended by members of the college’s staff (both teaching and non-teaching), Pax Romana members from Effiakuma Nkwanta Nursing and Midwifery Training College, and Cathsu members from Fijai Senior High School.
