The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Apostle Opoku Onyinah, has said churches in the country will be giving special offering and weekly prayers for the next three years to support the building of the National Cathedral.
Speaking at a fundraising ceremony for the edifice on Sunday, he said “the period is to be labelled National Cathedral Week,” to help raise funds for the $250 million project.
“During that week, the weekdays will be used to pray for the country and cathedral project, and on that Sunday, a special offering is to be taken for the Cathedral project.
“Corporate bodies in Ghana as well as Ghanaian Christian churches in the diaspora will also be contacted to make a contribution towards the project,” he said.
“Two weeks after this national launch, that is, September 19, 2021, we appeal to all churches to launch the fundraising at their levels to engender greater enthusiasm and participation.
“During such programmes, free-will offerings and pledges are expected to be taken to support the Cathedral project,” he urged.
