First female priest of the Anglican Church of Ghana.


Reverend Hannah Dwomoh, a 60- year-old educationist at Nkoranza in Brong Ahafo at the weekend became the first female priest of the Anglican Church of Ghana.

Rev. Dwomoh was ordained as a Deacon in June last year by the immediate past Bishop of the Sunyani Diocese of the church, the Most Rev Thomas Ampah Brient, and became a Reverend Minister in November the same year.

She is a graduate of Saint Nicholas Anglican Seminary in Cape Coast.

Preaching a sermon at the Saint Barnabas Anglican Church at Nkoranza during her first solemn Holy Mass, the Rev. Dwomoh urged members of the church to eschew selfishness and to respect their fellow human beings as Christians should do.

She called on members of the Church to support and assist the needy and to conduct themselves as role models in their communities.

The Rev Dwomoh thanked God for giving her the opportunity to serve Him in her new role as a priest, and prayed for His wisdom, more knowledge and strength so she could perform to the satisfaction of all and win more souls.

Okatakyie Agyeman Kudom 1V, Omanhene of Nkoranza Traditional Area and his elders attended the service and commended the female priest "for allowing God to take control of her life".

He noted that the Rev. Dwomoh had made great history for Nkoranzaman which would be a lasting record for posterity.
