Be bold to tell the truth – Archbishop Sarfo

The Anglican Church has ordained two new priests and a deaconess with a call on Ghanaians to be bold to tell the truth.

The Most Reverend Dr. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, Archbishop of the Internal Province of Ghana, said standing for the truth was the path towards building the society on a solid foundation of moral discipline and integrity.

Performing the ordination ceremony at the Cathedral Church of Saint Cyprian the Martyr in Kumasi, he underlined the need to work together to promote peace and unity of the nation.

The new priests are Reverend Abbiw-Abaidoo and Rev Mrs Margaret Ivy Fiagbey. The deaconess is Sister Elizabeth Abena Gyamfuah Akrofi.

Archbishop Sarfo reminded them to “minister in faith and walk in the footsteps of Christ”.

Additionally, he said, they should be prayerful and diligent in the reading of the Holy Scriptures to deepen their faith.

He appealed to their immediate families and the congregation to give them every needed support and encouragement to enable them live up to expectation in God’s Ministry.

The Right Rev Dr Cyril Kobina Ben-Smith, the Suffragan Bishop of Kumasi, in a sermon, urged them to refuse to be corrupted and provide voice for the voiceless and the vulnerable.

He said they should be humble, modest and decent to become good examples to the rest of the society.
