Ghanian Abp. Ready to Work

By Augustus Aikins

The Anglican Archbishop of West Africa wants his province and the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference to fight poverty, child trafficking, and climate change.

The Most Rev. Daniel Sarfo said his archdiocese and the Archdiocese of Kumasi have known a good working relationship since his consecration as a bishop in 1998. He urged the two churches to share ideas, work together at the national level, and meet with each other yearly.

Prayer, witnessing, and mission will bring the two churches together in the service of humanity, he said.

Archbishop Sarfo, Bishop Joseph Baawobr of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wa, and Bishop Victor Atta-Baffoe of the Anglican Diocese of Cape Coast are members of a committee that will oversee follow-up on the joint declaration signed by Pope Francis and Archbishop Welby on Oct. 5.

Archbishop Sarfo expressed his happiness in seeing Pentecostal and charismatic churches in Ghana and other African nations celebrating the Holy Eucharist and using vestments like Anglicans and Roman Catholics.
