The Navrongo-Bolgatanga Diocese of the Catholic Church on Sunday commissioned a new church building at Yorogo-Gaabisi, near Bolgatanga valued at 30,000 Ghana Cedis.
The new church, known as the Yorogo-Gaabisi Christ the King is a 200 capacity outstation structure and would serve about five cluster-communities in the area.
The community members apart from volunteering the land for the project also provided labour and some cash through proceeds from annual harvests.
Reverend James Tachua, Cathedral Administrator of the Parish entreated the community members to have firm belief in Jesus Christ and to share that mission with the World.
He called on them to learn to live in peace with one another and urged them to support the poor and the vulnerable just as Jesus Christ demonstrated during His preaching on earth.
Reverend Tachua urged the congregation to forgive one another as children of God to maintain the peace and security in the community.
He further entreated members of the Church to use their God-given talents and resources to help to develop the Church and thanked all societies in the church that were already doing so for their valuable support.
The community members also used the occasion to thank God for the project and noted that it would help to transform their lives.
