Desist From Get Rich Quick-Rev. Fr. Mintah Urges the Youth
THE parish priest of the St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Kaneshie, Very Rev Fr Johannes Minta, has decried the attitude of young men and women wanting to get rich overnight.
He pointed out that there was no substitute for hard work and, therefore, urged such people to mend their ways.
In a homily to commemorate the one-week passing away of Bro Francis Thomas Papa Anderson, Rev Fr Minta said all those who through foul means such as armed robbery sought to get rich by killing their fellow human beings would reap same benefits.
Con-celebrating the Mass which was held from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. were six priests: Rev. Fr. Johannes Minta, Parish Priest of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Kaneshie-Accra, Rev, Fr. Theodore Quaye, St. Luke Catholic Church in Korlebu-Accra, Rev. Fr. Francis Amonoo, Parish Priest of Annunciation Catholic Church in Kasoa, Rev Fr. Francis Ackon, Parish Priest of the Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Dansoman-Accra, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obeng Cudjoe of St Dominic Catholic Church in Taifa-Accra and Rev. Fr. Addy, SJ, of St. Anthony Catholic Church at Nungua-Accra.
Rev. Minta consoled the family of the deceased assuring them that vengeance belonged to God.
He prayed fervently that those who committed the heinous act would go on their knees and give themselves up to face justice.
More than 1,000 people from all walks of life attended the service on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Kaneshie-Accra to observe the One Week of the death of Bro. Francis Thomas Papa Anderson, who was a member of Council No. 48 (Accra West) and a parishioner of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church. He was also a worker with E-Evolution, a multi-media company.
The Supreme Knight, Sir Kt Ekow Paintsil, the immediate past Supreme Knight, Sir Kt. Derx Victor Baffour; the Deputy Supreme Knight, W/Bro Ernest Amoako-Arhen and a host of other senior officers.
Bro. Francis Anderson met his untimely death when armed robbers stormed his house at Kwashieman (Jah Love) in Accra.
He is believed to have resisted the armed robbers and in the process was stabbed to death.
