Koforidua, Aug 15,
GNA – The Koforidua Diocesan Anglican Church has ordained two new priests into
the church with a call to them to do more to give hope to the people and turn
them away from anything evil.

The Very Reverend
Dr. Emmanuel Isaac Kpakpo Addo, Dean of the Saint Nicholas Seminary, said they
should work hard to spread the gospel to everybody.

The newly ordained
ministers were the Right Rev Joseph Martey Larweh and the Rev Peter Ohene
Tettey, a former presenter of the Eastern FM, now a Deacon.

The Very Rev Dr.
Addo reminded them to mirror sublime qualities of modesty, humility and
integrity – to become good example not only to the congregation but to the rest
of the society.

It was also
important that they aided members of the church to grow in their faith, he
added.

He counseled them
to remain prayerful, telling them that, there would be challenges and
temptations.

The Very Rev Dr.
Addo encouraged the congregation and family members to support the priests with
prayers to enable them to succeed.

On hand to perform
the ordination ceremony held at the Saint Peter’s Cathedral, was the Rt. Rev
Francis Benjamin Quashie, the Diocesan Bishop.
