GhC 31.7 Million Contribution Generated For National Cathedral – National Cathedral Secretariat
The National Cathedral Secretariat says 31.7 million cedis has been received so far as contribution towards construction.
The national cathedral will serve as space for formal religious activities of the country as well as a magnet for tourists.
Speaking at a press conference, Chairman of the board of Trustees for the national cathedral, Rev. Opoku Onyinah gave a rundown of the donations received so far, where he stated that, GhC 2.21 million out of the amount was generated from various church donations.
A fundraiser dubbed “The National Cathedral Week”, was launched on Wednesday June 29,2022, to also raise money for the construction of the national cathedral. It is to begin from July 4 to July 10, 2022.
Speaking to the press feuding a press conference, Rev. Onyinah said, “the result of the fundraising so far does not meet the demands of the cash flow for the construction. Thus, we have reached a very critical stage where our fundraising efforts have to be scaled up.
Overall, the central thrust of our fundraising during the National Cathedral Week is mass mobilisation. And our expectation is to raise one million Ghanaian Christians who will commit to giving at least GH¢100 a month to the National Cathedral Project. With a Christian population of over 20 million in the country, that is doable.”
