The Tamale Ecclesiastical Province of Northern Ghana has been in partnership with the Diocese of Münster in Germany for 35 years. This 35th Anniversary of Partnership is scheduled to be celebrated later at the provincial level in November in Navrongo/Bolgatanga Diocese and hopefully in Münster as well.
As part of the local celebrations prior to the provincial one, our diocese set aside Sunday, September 24th to be marked in each parish as partnership day whilst the diocesan version will take place later in October.
We, in St Francis Xavier Parish, observed the day with lots of well patronized activities, beginning with the eucharistic celebration, praying for the continuing success of the entire partnership concept, but especially for our new partnership with St Margarita Parish in Wadersloh. The day was crowned with the planting of a partnership tree, with music and merry making and sharing in a picnic style.
Long live the partnership, long live our friendship in mission.
