Catholic Church Withdraws Sponsorship to Tertiary Students

 The Catholic Church has hinted that will no longer sponsor students to pursue higher education in the country as witnessed in the past.

It has however stated that it would only resource them with credit facilities instead to make them self-sufficient and reliant to pursue their own dreams as a way to enable the youth establish businesses to cater for their future educational needs without relying solely on the Church for sponsorship.

This initiative the church reveals will also create an avenue for the youth to go into entrepreneurship and subsequently support its own growth.

His Grace, Most Rev. Philip Naameh, Archbishop of the Tamale Metropolis believes that by resourcing the youth with credit facilities for them to venture into businesses is a multifaceted dimension in ensuring that the youth are independent and self sufficient to support themselves and their immediate families as well as the Church and the society at large.

He therefore charged the Catholic Charismatic Renewal group to increase their prayers and spiritual believes to win more souls for Christ in 2016.

“I will join the Charismatic Renewal group in some of their prayer sessions should they uplift their prayer levels”, he assured.  

The Metropolitan Bishop also in his New Year message, urged the Church to endeavour to provide accommodation for priests in the church across the region to avoid the situation where most of the priests were accommodated in hotels and guest houses.

Meanwhile, he has called on the leaders of the Catholic Church to organize singles within the church into recognizable groups otherwise known as diocesan associations to enable the diocese to help them spiritually in their Christian lives.

Most Rev. Philip Narmeh believes through the diocesan association, some of them will be able to get their future partners and address some of the societal challenges faced by these youth.
