About 20,000 Catholic faithful from across the country would gather in Asante-Mampong for the 9th national congress of the  Sacred Heart of Jesus Enthronement.

Delegates from La Cote d’ Ivoire, Togo, Benin and Nigeria are also expected to attend the four-day event, which would be held from September 01 – 04.

“Committing the family to the mercy of God, through the sacred heart of Jesus” is the theme chosen for the congress.

The Reverend Father Bernard Obeng Gyamfi, Spiritual Director of the Kumasi Provincial Sacred Heart of Jesus Enthronement Centre, told journalists in Goaso that it would help to the congregation to renew and grow in their faith.

In addition, it would underline the need and motivate everybody to mirror sublime qualities of love, compassion, heart full of tenderness, forgiveness, kindness and mercy.

The congress, he said, would be opened to everybody.
