Wawase (Ash), March 22, GNA - The Most Reverend Joseph Osei Bonsu, President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference, Ghana, has admonished Christians to pray incessantly to be able to resist the temptations of the devil.

Parishioners from Atimatim, Wawase, Maase, Besease and Swedru attended the mass.
