The Bole branch of the Catholic Organization for Social and Religious Advancement (COSRA) has launched the 2021 edition of COSRA Week in Bole in
the Savannah region. This took place at the Martyrs of Uganda Catholic Church on Sunday 2nd May, 2021.
The theme for this year’s celebration is “The word of God, membership drive towards COSRA formation and transformation in Ghana.”
Launching the week long programme, the secretary to the group, Ms Mercy Kuug explained that COSRA is an adult youth movement in the Catholic Church that traces its roots of establishment to Ghana. This according her has made the group practically appreciating the needs of Ghanaians by extension the African youth.
Ms Kuug emphasised that COSRA addresses the social, economic, political and Religious needs of the youth by providing equal platforms for fruitful deliberations irrespective of race, tribe, social/educational status, language or gender.
She therefore appealed to the youth who are unattached to groups in the Parish to find solace in COSRA.
Membership of COSRA she said is opened to all Catholics who are 18 years and above. Most passive youth in the Parish according to Ms Kuug are now very active Catholic youth and now have a sense of not only belonging but more importantly a sense of mission as a result of their association with COSRA
In this era of self-reliance as a Church, COSRA she said is aimed at encouraging the spirit of voluntary service to the Church and to inculcate in members the habit of obedience, fear of God, discipline, love of neighbor and humility.
Variety of activities were outlined for the week, including talks on marriage and the Catholic Church doctrines. Others include Bible sharing, health walk, clean up exercises, visiting the sick and aged and fun games.
