Kranka Parish Visits Frankmay Orphanage Home
The Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Eric Opoku Aning, and the Catholic Faithful of St. Arnold Janssen Parish at Kranka, paid a special visit to the Frankmay Orphanage Home in Techiman. The Parish made this visit to the Orphanage and donated assorted food stuffs, mosquito nets, and clothing to the orphanage. This work of mercy was part of the schedule for the Tenth Anniversary celebration of the Catholic Diocese Techiman. Each parish in the diocese is expected to do similar charitable works as part of the church’s ministry of Charity to the poor, the marginalized and the imprisoned. The Bishop, on behalf of the Diocese of Techiman, will later in the month of May, make presentation to the Yeji Prisons.
Rev. Fr. Eric Opoku Aning, and a good number of the Parishioners of Kranka, celebrated Holy Mass with the children and caretakers of the orphanage home. Fr. Eric thanked God for the gift of the orphanage home and praised the Proprietors for their good vision and love for the marginalized and orphaned. He prayed for the children and asked God to touch the hearts of many to come to the aid of the orphanage.Read more ...

Martin Oduro Bilson, the Chaplain of this school and his team of catechists and teachers, who volunteered to catechize and prepare these candidates adequately for the sacrament of confirmation.
The Bishop explained that every first day of May (otherwise known as May Day or Labor Day), has long been dedicated to all working people all over the world. It was Pope Pius XII who instituted the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, on this May Day to provide for all workers, a saintly example to enable us to grasp the meaning and the divine purpose of human labor.Read more ...
