Koforidua, March 26, GNA - Mrs Justice Sophia Adinyira, a Supreme Court Judge, on Sunday has called for support for the youth in the church to enable them play the role expected of them.

In a sermon Very Rev. Joseph Sam-Binney, Dean of the Cathedral, advised the youth against using methods outside the established institutions of the church in fighting for their grievances. He urged them to join the priesthood while they are still young and should not wait till when they were old and about to die before offering their service to God and advised them against drinking of alcoholic beverages and smoking.

The Diocesan President of the Youth Ministry, Mr Mark Ofosu, expressed his appreciation to the former leadership of the Youth Ministry for the role they had played to bring the Ministry to where it had reached. He said the tenth anniversary celebration that would be climaxed in August at Akosombo would be used to create awareness of the role of the youth in evangelism.
