said, earlier in the year, Women Fellowship of the Diocese, made a donation to
the Koforidua St Joseph Hospital and the Mens’ Fellowship made similar
donations to the Suhum Government Hospital.

They were all as
part of activities to celebrate the anniversary of the diocese.

Very Rev Dr Dennis
Joseph Boadu, the Synod Secretary of the Church, said the Koforidua Diocese of
the Methodist Church within the 40 years spread to almost all parts of Eastern

management of the region, he said, the Oda and the Nkawkaw Dioceses, were
created out of the Koforidua Diocese.
