The bishops of Ghana share with Pope Francis on their work at their just-ended visit to Rome

The bishops of Ghana were in Rome this past week (23-25 September) for their five-yearly Ad Limina Visit during which they were able to share the experience of their local church with Pope Francis and officials of the Roman Curia. The Catholic Church in Ghana has four Archdioceses, fifteen Dioceses and an Apostolic Vicariate run by the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD).

On Tuesday, 23 September Pope Francis met the whole group of bishops from the four ecclesiastical provinces of Ghana, namely: Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi and Tamale. The Ghanaian bishops were led in their September 22-25th Ad Limina by the current president of the conference Bishop Joseph Osei-Bonsu of the Diocese of Konongo-Mampong. Shortly after that meeting the Archbishop of Accra, His Grace Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle came to our studios and I began by asking him to share with us on their encounter with the successor of Peter.
