“I am impressed with the work of the Noble Order” – Archbishop of Freetown declares
THE Metropolitan Archbishop of Freetown, Most Rev. Edward Tamba Charles, says he will give a clean bill of health report on the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall to any Bishop in Sierra Leone.
He said the successful collaboration between the Noble Order and the Catholic Church in Freetown, Sierra Leone, was so great that he would not hesitate recommending the good works of the Society to the Bishops in Sierra Leone.
He said this in a remark at the consecration of Council 141, in Freetown on November 25, 2017.
Most Rev Tamba Charles paid glowing tribute to the performance of the Councils and Courts in Freetown since the entry of the Noble Order in Sierra Leone and stated that he was ready for more Councils/Courts and membership since he was very satisfied with the formation the Noble Order gave its members.
The Archbishop took advantage of the gathering to plead for support for Priestly formation for his Archdiocese since with the expansion of the Order he was enjoined to provide the Councils and Courts with Chaplains.
He also urged the Noble Order to encourage more of the youth to take up priestly vocations if they show the interest and to support the seminaries.
The newly installed Grand Knight of the Council 141, Bro Rev Fr Patrick George, who is also the parish priest of Edward’s Parish, stated that since joining the Order he had become a better person.
Three new Courts were also consecrated on the same day in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
The new Courts are Court 134, St. Edward’s Parish, Kingtom, Court 135 St. Martin De Porres Parish, Blackhall Road and Court 136 Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish, Juba, Freetown while Council 141, was consecrated at the St Edward’s Parish, Kingtom.
The Supreme Knight, Sir Kt. Bro Ambrose Yennah and the Grand Lady, Most Respected Lady, Sis Grace Budu-Smith, led a high-powered delegation from the Supreme Council and Grand Court for the consecration exercises.
