SS Peter and Paul Bonsu

Bonsu is a town in the Nkoranza South Municipality. it is about 8km from Nkoranza on the Nkoranza-Techiman road. The town has a population of 2,611.

Bonsu Catholic church was founded in 1936 by Op. Kwadwo Fordjour and Op. Kwabena Owusu, who brought the Catholic faith from Berekum in the Bono East Region of Ghana. One Mr. S Quarshie, a Fante and a convert from Anglican Church came from Nkoranza to help as Catechist.

Peter Kwasi Sarpong, Emeritus Bishop of Kumasi Diocese, created Nkoranza Parish out of Techiman Parish with Rev. Fr. Martin Wesseling as the first Parish Priest, and Bonsu became one of its outstations until 7th January 2005, when Bishop Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi, Bishop of Sunyani Diocese, created it as a Parish and appointed Rev.
