The Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity, High Street-Accra has celebrated its 120th Anniversary with a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 24th August, 2014.
The month-long celebrations under the theme “Transforming the Cathedral, Inspiring the City” saw a large representation of the clergy, laity and the media present to honour the occasion.
The Cathedral which is the centre of worship for Anglicans in Accra was constructed in August 1894 with a vote of five thousand pounds sterling (£5,000) from the Development Budget of the British Colonial Government upon the recommendation of the then Governor of the Gold Coast, William Brandforth Griffith.
Speaking at the service, the Anglican Bishop of Accra, Rt. Rev’d. Dr. Daniel S. M. Torto announced plans to construct a new magnificent Cathedral building estimated at $2.6 million which would have a capacity of over 2500 and would be located just behind the current Cathedral Church building.
He also appealed to the general public to come on board in helping build this edifice.
The Youth and Children Ministry is a ministerial arm of the Diocese of Accra, which is responsible for organizing, coordinating and advancing the formation in Christ of all Anglicans up to age 35. Formation in Christ includes Christian education, social and peer development, life skills acquisition, and full participation in the Holy Church. Specific objectives in programs of the Ministry for Youth and Children will promote and support safe growth and development for youth and children of the diocese.
It was a joyous occasion on Saturday 28th June, 2014 when the Anglican Diocese of Accra launched its customized New International Version (NIV) of the Holy Bible at the Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity, High Street-Accra.
