THE YEAR OF FAITH :- Most Rev. Joseph Osei - Bonsu
Most Rev. Joseph Osei – Bonsu, the Bishop of Konongo – Mampong and the President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference delivered the second Lecture of the 10th Anniversary Lecture Series the 10th of April, 2013 at the University Campus. He spoke on the theme, ‘‘The Year of Faith’’.
In his lecture he explained the meaning of ‘‘The Year of Faith’’ as declared by the Catholic Church at certain times in the history of the Church.
Bishop Osei – Bonsu said, ‘‘it should be noted that at certain times in the history of the church, popes have called upon the faithful to dedicate themselves to deepening their understanding of a particular aspect of the faith.’’
In 1967, Pope Paul VI announced a Year of Faith commemorating the 19th Centenary of the martyrdom of Saints Peter and Paul. The church was called upon to recall the supreme act of witness by these two saints to inspire the present – day church to make a sincere profession of faith, collectively and individually, he said.
The lecture was attended by the University community and the general public.
