Ghana: 12th Archbishop Andoh’s Endowment Fund Awards Ceremony Held in Accra

(THE GHANAIAN CHRONICLE) The Accra Dioceses of the Catholic Church of Ghana, yesterday, held its annual Bishop Andoh Endowment Fund Awards at the Holy Spirit Cathedral in Accra.

The ceremony was to award brilliant but needy students in the Catholic Church.

In an address, the guest speaker, Mrs. Susana Adu Aryee, underscored the importance of educating a needy child because it helped raise a useful citizen and build a nation positively by reducing crime, streetism, unemployment and other social vices in society.

Mrs Aryee, therefore, urged the awardees not to let the Church and their parents down, but rather focus on becoming a bright light for the country and the church, adding that it was important for them (awardees) to reciprocate the gesture by completing their education and assisting other needy children.

“Awardees do not let the church and/or your parents down. Under no circumstances should you reject your parents. Focus on becoming a bright light for our country and tomorrow’s Church,” she charged.

Mrs Aryee also called on parents to patronise catholic institutions to imbibe the values of Catholicism.

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle, reiterated the need for the beneficiaries to stay focussed, remain disciplined and work extra hard to achieve everything they wanted in life.

Most Rev, Palmer-Buckle appealed to them to help anyone who came their way because they might be the same person who helped them to reach where they were now.

In all 73 students, the Founding Board of trustees, Committees and Friends of the Fund, received awards.
