Two New Deacons For Ho Diocese

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Ho, on the 4th of January 2022, ordained two ‘Transitory’ Deacons.

The two are Rev. Prosper Yao Agbosu from Immaculate Conception Parish, Kpando and Michael Wonders Tsekpokumah from St. Augustine Parish, Alavanyo

Most Rev. Emmanuel Kofi Fianu, SVD, Bishop of the Ho Diocese in a homily at the Bishop Holland Centre in Sokode Gborgame where this memorable event took place, called on the newly ordained deacons to be men of good reputation, filled with wisdom and the Holy Spirit just like the deacons in the Act of the Apostle chapter six.

Bishop Fianu, urged the deacons to demonstrate before God and humanity that they are above every suspicion of blame and be true ministers of Christ and men firmly rooted in faith and in love.

As he reminded the faithful of the duties of deacons in the Catholic Church, he admonished the deacons to assist the Bishop and his body of Priests as ministers of the Word and the Sacraments before their final ordination into the Ministerial Priesthood.

The Bishop, further, reflected on how Jesus fed the five thousand men with five loaves of bread and two fish as an act of charity since he was moved with compassion when he saw a crowd who were like sheep without a Shepherd.

The newly ordained Deacons expressed their heartfelt appreciation to the bishop, their parish priests, formators, their brother seminarians, their parents and the entire faithful for their prayers and support throughout their formative years.

In all, about forty people graced this memorable occasion presided over by Bishop Fianu.
