Catholic Bishop calls for responsible parentage

By gna

Most Reverend Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi, Catholic Bishop of Sunyani Diocese, has appealed to parents to bring their children up in a manner that would make them become responsible and acceptable in society.

He said most children of today go wayward because parents tended to show little or no concern towards their upbringing.

Bishop Gyamfi made the call at Aboabo Number Two in Dormaa municipality when he baptised 192 people and appealed to members of the parish to lead lives worthy of emulation.

The Bishop who was on a visit to the zone as part of his routine tour of parishes in the diocese reminded members of the church to lead lives worthy of emulation.

“This is the single most effective way of winning more souls for Christ”, he said.

Most Rev Gyamfi urged Ghanaians to intensify their prayers for a peaceful election in December and said “violent clashes and horrible scenes in some sister countries during elections should be enough warning to Ghanaians.”

He appealed to political parties, the Electoral Commission and the government to ensure that Ghana's peace was not tampered with before, during and after the general election.
