Twenty First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Welcome Parishioners from St. Michael’s Cathedral!

As announced in previous bulletins and through the local media, St. Michael’s Cathedral is closed for extensive renovations for at least the next nine months. Cathedral services have been moved to St. Paul’s Basilica. We have welcomed many Parishioners from the Cathedral who have come to make St. Patrick’s their home during the renovation period.

With advice from the Archdiocese, if Cathedral Parishioners submit Donation Envelopes for St. Michael’s in our collection here at St. Patrick’s, we are happy to forward them to the Cathedral Office. If new parishioners would like to support St. Patrick’s while they are with us, you can register through our parish office and receive Envelopes for St. Patrick’s. This will help keep your donation records tidy as you celebrate at a different Church. Visitor Envelopes are always available on the back counter for those who wish to donate on a casual basis and receive an income tax receipt at the end of the year.

Know that you are most welcome here at St. Patrick’s, and to take part in our parish programs & activities! In the Redeemer, Fr. Santo Arrigo C.Ss.R., Pastor

Brief Profile of Diocese of Damongo

The Diocese of Damongo, is located in the north western part of Ghana. It was carved out of the Archdiocese of Tamale in 1995. It is predominantly rural and is located in the poorest area of the country. The economic and social infrastructure in the area is highly underdeveloped. Education in general is very poor in this part of the country due to lack of facilities. As a result there is a very high illiteracy rate, 80% among women and 72% among men. 90% of the population are subsistent farmers and have to depend on rain fed agriculture. There is therefore extreme poverty.

The diocese is an area of primary evangelization with a Catholic population of 26,504 (6.2%), with over 80% animists ; and a fast growing presence of Islam and the new religious movements (the sects). There are 12 parishes with 180 mission stations being served by 45 priests.

The needs of the Church are many; there are clinics and schools to be built, good drinking water to be provided for poor communities, catechists (lay evangelizers) to be trained, vocations to the priesthood to be nurtured. Proceeds from this mission appeal will be used to provide good drinking water, medicines and medical supplies for the health facilities in some of our poor and deprived communities; faith formation of the youth as well as support the training of seminarians and catechists for the work of evangelization. Thanks in anticipation for your prayers and generous support.

+Most Rev. Peter Paul Yelezuome ANGKYIER

(Bishop of Damongo)
