- 2 weeks ago
The Brothers of the Holy Cross in the District of West Africa on Friday, January 14, 2022, held the Requiem Mass for their Brothers, Joseph K. B. Annan, C.S.C. and Daniel Dardoe, C.S.C at the District Center at Brafoyaw in Cape-Coast.
In his homily, Most Rev. Mathias Kobina Nketiah, Emeritus Archbishop of Cape Coast called on Christians not be afraid of death. “Death will one day come to all of us. Yet, as believers, we know that death has been conquered. Death, therefore is not the end of man.” As baptized Catholic Christians, we are easter people hence we believe in the resurrection and if we truly believe in the resurrection then we should note that when we experience bodily death, we know that someday we will resurrect with Christ in glory. We have died with Jesus, entered into the tomb with Him, and have also risen with him through our baptism.
The Bishop emeritus of Cape coast Archdiocese Archbishop Nketiah also commended Brothers Joseph Annan and Daniel Dardoe for their commitment and sacrifice to the Church. He encouraged all present to learn from their heritage of perfect charity, Humility and service to God.
