On the day he retires after serving as a Parish Priest for the past 50 years in Ghana, Father Andrew Campbell of the Christ the King Church at Cantonment in Accra says he will remain in the priesthood fraternity by working behind the scenes, for the rest of his life.
The ceremony marked the 70th anniversary of the Catholic Church and the official send-off mass for the 75-year-old Father.
Father Andrew Campbell who has over the years championed the course of lepers together with Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, said he will not relent on doing God’s work and reaching out to the less privileged in society.
The official send-off held at the premises of the Christ the King Church is in conformity with the rules of the Church.
The soft-spoken charismatic founder of the Lepers Aid Committee encouraged his successor to be accommodating.
He also called on the Church to accord his successor, Father Ebenezer Akesseh, the same support they gave him during his tenure.
