A BOOK ON CATHOLIC SOCIAL DOCTRINE LAUNCHED IN CAPE COAST

A book entitled ‘ Catholic  Social Doctrine At A Glance- Principles, Messages And Impact on Development’ authored by Sir Kt. Dr Lawrence A. Honny has been launched at the St. Peter’s Regional Seminary with a call on Catholics and the society as a whole to apply the teachings in such documents  in their developmental plans.

The author, Sir Dr. Honny said at the launch that his objective for writing the book was informed by a desire to correct the  misconception  people have that the Social Doctrine of the Church merely promotes the Catholic faith with no real message for others who do not profess the faith. He says that even though the Teachings are based on the Theology and Doctrine of the Catholic Church, it is far from a narrow profession of faith but rather deals with the development of the individual and human society.
