Rev. Fr. Bonaventure Kweku Quaidoo of the Adenta St. John the Evangelist Catholic Parish on Tuesday 12 May 2015 celebrated his silver jubilee in priesthood with a commemorative
mass at the Holy Spirit Cathedral, Adabraka.
The homily was delivered by Rev. Fr. Maurice Gym, who is in his 48th year in the priesthood and is currently the chaplain mandated to minister to all Non-Catholic Institutions in the Archdiocese of Cape Coast.
Rev . Fr. Gym encouraged Fr. Quaidoo to remain steadfast noting that we are well aware that the vocation to be a priest is not an easy one. “When a man is admitted to holy orders, he makes vows of: commitment to celibacy, commitment to obedience and commitment to service among other things.
Fr. Bonaventure Quaidoo was ordained a priest in Tamale on May 12, 1990 by Peter Poreku Cardinal Dery, Archbishop Emeritus of Tamale (Deceeased).
Fr. Quaidoo who celebrated the mass, dedicated the occasion to his parents. His late Apsunian dad, Mr Patrick Kwame Kusi (PKK) Quaidoo, who passed in 2002, was a former Politician and Minister of State in the First republic.
In his interaction with guests at the ceremony, Fr. Quainoo said: “Today marks 25 years in my life as a priest; Lord, help me to be simple so that people will look at my simplicity and be simple”.
Several gifts were presented to Fr. Quaidoo including those from the Archdiocese of Accra, Sacred Heart, Knights of Marshall and Christian Mother’s of St. John’s the Evangelist, Adenta.
Fr. Quaidoo is a member of the St. Augustine’s Past Students Union (APSU) class of 1975.
