St. Theresa's Society

CELEBRATION OF ST. TERESA'S FEAST
 
It has been a long standing tradition of the Seminary to celebrate the feast of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus, the patron saint of the Seminary each year. Again, since the formation of the St. Teresa of the Child Jesus Society in the Catholic Church of Ghana, the Archdiocesan branch of the Society has chosen to join the Seminary every year in celebrating the feast day of St. Teresa. The occasion affords the Society the opportunity to interact with Seminarians and formators and to contribute their widow's mite to the formation.
This year's celebration drew members from all the various parishes in the Archdiocese of Cape Coast to the Seminary. It started with the celebration of the Eucharist which wa presided by Very Rev. Fr. Isaac Ebo - Blay (the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Cape Coast). In his homily, he admonished both the Seminarians and members of St. Teresa's Society to imitate the simplicity and holiness of St. Teresa.
He intimated that the Chuch today needs good and holy priests; priests who are dedicated and committed to their calling.
After the celebration of the Eucharist, the president of the Society, Mrs. Charlotte Obosu, on behalf of the members, made a cash donation of GHc 1000.00 together with some food stuff and items. She also pledged the Society's unflinching support for the Seminary. She advised the seminarians to be disciplined and responsive to their formation. On his part, the Rector of the Seminary thanked the society for their kind gesture and like Oliver Twist, asked for more support. He called on other soieties in the church to emulate the gesture of the St. Teresa's Society and come to the aid of the seminary, since this is the only "pure" minor seminary without the government's assistance we have in the country.
As part of the programme, the society organised health screening exercise for seminarians, formators and members of the society.
