Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus Society of the Catholic Church is to hold a three-day-meeting at the Catholic Social Centre in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region from this Friday to Sunday 1- 3-Sept-17.
The meeting is part of the society’s 10th anniversary celebration.
The move, according to First President of the Society, (Upper East) Mrs Elizabeth Panin was to build spiritual capacity of its majorly women membership so that they could support their Priests on one hand, and on the other promote unity among the members and to reinforce spirit of evangelisation among members.
The First president said Godly values such as humility, prayerfulness, and agape love for human kind was imperative, and as a result members through prayers and teachings during the three day meeting would be imbibed those values to help them fulfil their mission both to the church and the society.
She said it was very important more women join the group to renew their spirituality to be able to live peaceful lives, particularly in contemporary challenging mortal world.
She said God would protect and provide for members as they learn to pray, and provide for their Priests as well as engaging in evangelisation.
In effort to encourage members to imitate Patron of the society, Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus Christ, President of the society, (Upper East) Madam Titigah Mercy narrated that the Saint was fifth of her parents to become a nun and that her life was full of love, humility and care for the needy.
Likewise, she said, the society was to be empowered in the spirit to emulate the Patron in evangelism, provision for their priests and care for the needy.
