THE CAPE Coast Diocese of the Anglican Church on Tuesday launched its 30th anniversary celebration at Cape Coast in the Central region.
Activities marking the celebration include donations to the Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital, the Heart Foundation, clean-up exercise, a youth forum, love feast, quizzes as well as a route march.
The celebration which is on the theme â€śServing Our Present Age, Our Calling to Fulfillâ€ť will be dedicated to youth development and human welfare in general.
Addressing a media launch for commencement of the celebration, Cape Coast Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Church, Rt. Rev. Sylvanus Addotei-Allotey said the church had contributed immensely to society through spiritual and educational activities since its inception in 1981.
Rt. Rev. Allotey said the diocese runs 54 day nurseries, 62 primary schools and 74 junior high schools under the administration of the Anglican Educational Unit with two senior high schools.
The Diocesan Bishop noted that plans were underway for the church to establish a clinic at Birimso to complement the only eye clinic the church has in Cape Coast.
He disclosed further that the planning committee was in the process of establishing an e-village to serve as an apprenticeship center to equip youth in the region with employable skills.
The diocese, Rt. Rev. Allotey disclosed, will also host the St. Nicholas Seminary which trains men and women for ministry within the Anglican Church in the province of West Africa.
The Diocesan Bishop stressed the need for Ghanaians to protect and maintain the peace the country was currently enjoying and always remember that it was by Godâ€™s grace that we were safe at all times.
He urged politicians to demonstrate their commitment to peace by calling to order members of their political parties who stir up any form of animosity or strife.
He advised media practitioners to help create a nation of people with divergent views who were united.
Rt. Rev. Allotey underscored the need for the media to provide a platform to propagate truth and accuracy and use their tremendous influence to spread good ideas that would improve the lives of everyone.
