January 17,,2017 - Ghana

The Bishop of Sunyani diocese Rt. Rev Dr. Matthew Gyamfi kwesi visited Mary Help of
Christian parish for the confirmation of eighty-eight catechumates, and installed Fr. Robertson
SDB as the new parish priest of the parish.

The bishop in his homily, educated the faithful and the candidates about the particular season of
advent, which the church celebrates the waiting of the coming of Christ. He said Christ did not
come only 2000 years ago and neither is He just about to come now but rather He is always with
us in our daily life and we continue to see His presence in the people around us especially the
poor and needy, the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and in the Blessed sacrament.
In our difficult and challenging moments we need to pay closer attention and devotion to Him
through prayers, visiting the Blessed Sacrament and paying much attention and devotion during
the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

After instructing the candidates about the sacrament which they were about to receive, he then proceeded to administering the sacrament and with the help of the priests there present he carried out the confirmation rites.

Next on the agenda of the day was the installation of Fr. Robertson as the new parish priest of MHC Odumase but before the installation the Bishop called all the Salesians present in the Mass to stay by his side, he then advised him saying, ‘’ the congregation through the community put you in charge, so in exercising your duties you must act in union with the community and your superiors orders.’’

At the end of the Eucharistic celebration the Bishop had a group picture with those who have been confirmed.
