“If I walk in front of you, then I don’t know, if I will take you the right way.
If you walk in front of me, then I don’t know, if you will take me the right way.
If I walk beside you, then together we will find the right way”
Words of Wisdom from Ghana
Catholic Diocese of Navrongo-Bolgatanga
Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Minor Basilica
Most Reverend Alfred Agyenta wrote in his report, 80% of the people of Northern Ghana live from the land, dependant on the rainy season and often under the poverty line. The people responsible in the Parishes of the region try to combat this situation with financial plans and education initiatives. In 2013 the Bishop introduced a Pastoral Plan which resulted in many personnel changes in the individual parishes.
