He mentioned that “when you come to God just as you are, holiness will then be a consequence of your response to God.
He further reminded them that the promotion of vocations must not only be limited to praying for vocations but must also include doing concrete things that will foster, encourage and support vocations.

The provincial study session was instituted when GHANCYC decided to empower Ecclesiastical Provinces in the country to enable them form Provincial Youth Councils.
