Diocesan Website


To project the light of Christ in the Catholic Diocese of Navrongo-Bolgatanga.

“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid” (Mt 5, 14).


Most. Rev. Alfred Agyenta



“The Church, our mother, knows that if these media are properly used they can be of considerable benefit to mankind. They contribute greatly to the enlargement and enrichment of men’s minds and to the propagation and consolation of the kingdom of God. But the Church also knows that man can use them in ways that are contrary to the Creator’s design and damaging to himself. Indeed, she grieves with a mother’s sorrow at the harm all too often afflicted on society by their misuse” (Degree on the Means of Social Communication, no.2).


It is with great joy that I welcome all visitors to our Diocesan website which we are happy to launch officially on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. By the choice of this day we are entrusting the success and fruitfulness of this project to the intercession of our patroness, Our Lady of Seven Sorrows.


The above quotation from the Degree of the Means of Social Communication of the Second Vatican Council beautifully summaries the goal behind the establishment of this website.


It is intended, among others, to serve as a source of information about the life and activities of the Catholic Diocese of Navrongo-Bolgatanga, to inform and form those who wish to learn and know more about the Catholic faith and practices and to contribute to a sanitary use of the invaluable gift of the means of social communication through an exemplary responsible use of the site.


I am immensely grateful to all those who have worked behind the scenes to design, create and ensure that this website is up and running. I urge all our pastors, religious men and women and our lay faithful to make good and responsible use of the facility and above all to help sustain it.


Once more welcome and may God bless you as visit the site.
