Anglican Church Honours British Priest
The Bishop of the Koforidua Diocese of the Anglican Church, Rt Rev Francis Benjamin Quashie has observed that Christians would be judged by their faithfulness to their calling and not by their material success. He explained that, faithfulness in every profession produces single mindedness, commitment, truthfulness, honesty and humility, which are the basic requirements for the success of every endeavour. Rt Rev Quashie who was preaching at the Koforidua St Peter's Cathedral of the church at a thanksgiving service in honour of a British Anglican Priest, Rev Canon Terrence Grigg, said faithfulness eschew selfishness, pride and egoism. Rev Grigg, 76, who is celebrating 50 years of priesthood, had supported the Koforidua Diocese for the past 29 years. He established a fund to raise 1,000 pounds sterling annually to support the monthly stipends to priests in the diocese and offered scholarships to some members of the clergy to study in the UK, some of whom have become bishops and leading clergy men in the Anglican Church in Ghana. Rev Canon Grigg who recently retired from the Diocese of York in the UK is now serving at the Cottingham Parish. Rt Rev Quashie expressed the appreciation of the diocese to Rev Canon Grigg for his missionary work. The Koforidua-Ho Diocese had been split into the Koforidua and the Ho dioceses of the church.
