BISHOP TORTO CALLS ON HER LADYSHIP THE CHIEF JUSTICE
The Lord Bishop of Accra, Rt. Rev’d Dr. Daniel S. M. Torto paid a courtesy call on the Chief Justice, her Ladyship Justice Georgina Theodora Wood, this morning in her office. He was accompanied by the Diocesan Secretary, Rev’d Canon Ebenezer K. Jones-Okai and the Director of Administration, Ms. Victoria Oku. After a brief exchange of customary greetings, the Lord Bishop prayed to thank God for preserving all of us until now. He recalled that about three (3) years ago he paid a similar visit to her office to invite her to a major function organized by the Anglican Church in Accra. Unfortunately she was unavailable.
The Anglican Diocese of Accra is at the beginning of another triennial Synod. He had therefore come again to say “hello” and to invite her as the Guest Speaker for the next Synod scheduled to start on Wednesday, 15th July, 2015. He indicated that the function would be in the late afternoon. He had called personally to inform her before sending a formal invitation.
Her Ladyship asked that the formal invitation be sent.
They continued to talk about other matters, e.g. when construction of the new Cathedral Church building would start.
Asked for her advice to the Church, Her Ladyship said we should all continue to stand strong in the Lord Jesus. Another advice was given to the effect that the Church should speak out against corruption and the current rampant killings in the Country.
The Lord Bishop thanked her Ladyship for the audience while Rev’d Canon Jones-Okai prayed for God’s protection and blessings upon her in the performance of her onerous duties for the nation.
