Former President Rawlings hopes to support the National Cathedral if only the Catholic Church supports it too

A former head of state, Jerry John Rawlings has in a meeting with trustees of the National Cathedral, indicated that his position on the construction of the national cathedral lies with his mother church, the Catholic Church.

At the meeting earlier in the week, the former president said while he had his personal opinion on the cathedral, the position of the Catholic Church of which he is a member will be one he will respect.

The delegation was led by Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams and included Archbishop Justice Akrofi, Dr. Joyce Aryee and Executive Director of the Cathedral, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah.

They were there to formally invite former president Rawlings to a fundraising event slated for the Forecourt of the Black Star Square on December 28.

Members of the delegation took turns to explain to the former President the need for the construction of the cathedral.

Each of them accepted that that consultation on the project had not been the best.
