One of the first three women ordained as priests in the Anglican Diocese of Accra, Rev’d. Mrs. Alberta Kennies Addo has been elevated to the position of a Canon of the Church.
Rev’d. Addo who is the Priest-In-Charge of St. Matthew Anglican Church, New Bortianor was inducted into the canonry of St. Pertetua at a ceremony held at the Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Accra.
Her elevation ends centuries of male leadership of the Church.
Rev’d. Canon Mrs. Addo was among two other Priests who were inducted into the priesthood 11 years ago by the Rt. Rev’d. Dr. Justice Ofei Yaw Akrofi, former Primate of the Anglican Church of West Africa and Bishop of Accra.
The two other canons were Rev’d. Fr Isaac Nii Kwarte Quartey and Rev’d. Fr. Daniel Nii Attukwei Quaye.
