Bishop Fianu celebrates his Wooden Anniversary


On October 3, 2015, Bishop Fianu was ordained and consecrated as the Bishop of the Ho Diocese following the retirement of the then Bishop, Most Rev. Francis Kofi Anani Lodonu (now Bishop Emeritus), who shepherd the Diocese for more than four decades.

Choosing the theme; “gratitude”, the bishop celebrated his Wooden Anniversary with his sheepfold on 3rd October 2020, at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, Ho Bankoe.  He expressed his appreciation to God and the Catholic faithful for their support within these years. In attendance were Bishop Emeritus, Most Rev. Francis Anani Kofi Lodonu, the clergy, religious, and the representatives of catholic faithful from all corners of the diocese.

In his homily, the bishop said that God has a plan for all of us and hence we need not complain or argue with him since we as human beings are tempted to do so most especially during challenging moments. In addition, Bishop Fianu said he has had a fair share of these difficult moments but has learned not to argue with God but to remain calm.  The Bishop, therefore, urged all and sundry to support him and the Diocese in prayers and to ask for divine guidance for him so as to be obedient and to listen to the voice of his maker in difficult times as he continues his shepherding role.

The second part of the program was ushered in by the launching of  Bishop Fianu’s five-year Episcopacy Report Booklet. It is a booklet that gave accounts of his stewardship in the Diocese during these years. He said; “accountability promotes stewardship and inspires confidence and is the difference between success and failure.” The Bishop continued that “Accountability builds trust which is essential in any relationship and also improves performance as it eliminates the time and effort spent on distracting activities and other unproductive behaviour.”

In his congratulatory message, Bishop Emeritus Francis Kofi Lodonu congratulated his successor and called on all the faithful to rally around him to successfully lead this diocese. There were congratulatory messages from the Ho Diocesan Priests Association (HODPA), the religious, and the laity of the diocese.
