Rev. Fr. Joseph Henry Mensah, the Parish Priest, made the call at the launch of the year-long celebration on the theme: “25 Years as a United Family-knowing, Living and Sharing the Goodness of God.”
He explained that no human institution could succeed in a divisive, hateful and vengeful atmosphere adding that Ghana as a nation is no exception.
Rev. Fr. Mensah, therefore, urged Ghanaians to bury all ethnic, religious and political differences and come together as one people and contribute meaningfully towards the progress and development of the country.
He reminded Ghanaians that in all their endeavors, whether socially, economically and politically, they should always place the nation’s interest above all other considerations.
He said unhealthy partisanship, religious and ethnic intolerance were affront to effective nation building.
“We should not sit back and look on unconcerned because of partisanship but together, rise up and build a better nation for ourselves and posterity,” Rev. Fr. Mensah said.
He tasked members of the Parish and Christians in general to lead the crusade of promoting national unity by making a lot of differences through their lifestyles; in the home, school, church, workplace and the larger society.
Rev. Fr. Mensah paid glowing tribute to the founding fathers and present generation of the Parish for helping to build a strong and vibrant church, impacting positively on the community, nation and the world at large.
