Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle has justified the building of Ghana’s National Cathedral despite hardship in the country.
made this justification during the launch of a Fundraising in Koforidua to support the building of the National Cathedral.
Speaking at the event he said when God instructed Moses to build a temple when Israelites were in the desert despite going through tribulations, they joyfully supported for it and it became a blessing to them.
“The argument against this cathedral has been that, there is hardship and people are hungry so forth and so forth. But when God instructed Moses to build the Tabernacle for God, Israelites were on dessert, didn’t have what to eat but they contributed and contributed so much that it exceeded expectation in building the Tabernacle.”
The Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral urged Christians in Ghana to contribute to help the National Cathedral become a reality to the Glory of God.
If we get one million Christians of the 23 million who will donate every month just ghc100 cedis per person for three years so that at the end of the day you have ghc1,200 times one million it means we will have 200 million cedis a year. If we will be consistent with that we can finish that project in time.”
