Reverend Regina Baadu has been ordained as a priest of the Anglican Diocese of Cape Coast in Ghana, a landmark ordination in the church’s 40-year history.
Baadu is the first woman to be appointed, trained, and ordained as a Priest by the diocese since it was carved out of the Accra Diocese in 1981.
IgbereTV reports that the ceremony was held at St Mary the Virgin Anglican Church in Cape Coast.
The Diocesan Bishop, Rt Rev. Dr Victor Reginald Atta-Baffoe charged the new priests to offer selfless and dedicated service that would draw more people to Christ.
He implored them to be obedient to God since it was the only way they would be successful and overcome all hurdles and challenges that might come their way in the performance of their priestly duties.
