Archbishop Kojo Amissah Remembered

The Archdiocese of Cape Coast under the auspices of  Most Rev. Matthias Kobena Nketsiah, has commemorated  the 25th Death Anniversary of the  first Archbishop of Cape Coast Archdiocese, Most Rev. John Kojo Amissah (late), with two memorial lectures and a memorial Mass.The Memorial Mass which took place in the Archdiocesan Cathedral where his mortal remains lay was followed with a brief wreath laying ceremony. The first lecture which took place in Accra, was given by Archbishop Emeritus Peter K. Sarpong with Archbishop Charles Palmer Buckle taking the second at the Cape Coast University Auditorium. In all these lectures, the speakers diligently talked about who Kojo Amissah was, his ideals and convictions, his strong personality and his ever-readiness to defend the Catholic faith in Ghana and in Africa as a whole. The speakers underscored what he stood for during his life and they showed the relevance of his legacy to our contemporary days. At the end of the week-long celebration which saw the launching of an Educational Endowment Fund in his

memory, the St. Joseph Minor Basilica in Elmina, hosted the Thanksgiving Mass.

The Archbishop and the planning committee members have expressed their profound gratitude to all, especially the two venerable speakers, the Knights of Marshall and  their Noble Ladies who helped to organise the lecture in Accra. The Archdiocese is thankful to every body who contributed to the realisation of the anniversary.
