Most Rev Joseph Kwaku Afrifa-Agyekum, Catholic Bishop of the Koforidua Diocese has asked that all Parishes and Quasi-Parishes within his jurisdiction stay off in-person church service until an official statement is given.

The Prelate, in a memo to Religious and clergy in his jurisdiction noted that, authorities are still penning down strategic measures in line with the new directive to define the best way forward for the Diocese.

He said ” I wish to inform you that congregational church service are not to commence in any parish or Quasi-parish until i officially communicate to you” and added that, ” in the meantime, we’re working hard on some protocols that will guide the Diocese”.

On May 31, President Akufo-Addo spelt out an abridged version of congregational activities with a bit of ease in the country and a call for a maximum of 100 congregants spending an hour in a given setting.

The ease has seen most Arch/Dioceses issuing statements on the possible way forward for congregational church service to commence.

However, the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference is yet to issue an official statement guiding the faithful, clergy and Religious on congregational church service in the country.
