Having served as a teacher over a decade before becoming a priest, Fr. Louis touched on his hard work, visionary and astuteness to work, poised for development anywhere he was posted and urged the congregation to give him the needed support to enable him to accomplish his vision set out.

He said he knows, one of the visions of Fr. Gosu is the completion of the multipurpose hall at the parish.

In his remarks, Fr. Gosu thanked the Archbishop, Most. Rev. John Bonaventure Kwofie, for the confidence, reposed in him to Shepherd the church and said he would do as expected with the help of God.

He also thanked the Vicar General for taking time off his busy schedule to install him as parish priest.

Fr. Gosu had served in other communities including St. Dominic Savio, Afienya near Tema.
