Fr Joseph
This week we bid farewell to Fr Joseph Otwey-Buabeng who has been with us for almost 5 years. We thank Fr Joseph for all his hard work and commitment since he came to live among us. We will remember Fr Joseph for his deep faith and enthusiasm for sharing the gospel with us. We pray that he has a safe journey back to Ghana and that he carries with him many happy memories of his time in Lucan South.
Bon Voyage!
