Father Gregory has been a priest in the diocese of Yendi in Ghana for twenty years now. For years he has also been caring for children and victims of abuse and visiting prisoners in jail. Again and again, he has confronted the limits of the judicial system in seeking justice for the innocent in the prisons, or other victims of the system. These poor souls could not afford a lawyer, nor could the diocese. So we have helped him to qualify as a lawyer himself. On top of his own intensive pastoral work, he has also managed to study law. But the long nights with his books have been worth it in the end, as now he is officially accredited as a lawyer in Yendi and can represent the victims of injustice in court himself. At the same time, he is teaching the children and young people in the parishes how to defend their own human rights and how to get help if they are mistreated. As a lawyer, “I can now be of great use to the faithful, the diocese and the Church in all ghana,” Father Gregory writes. “I am thankful to God that He has helped me through your wonderful organisation to be able to fulfil this service,” he adds, with a little restraint, as in reality, his heart is overflowing with joy and gratitude.
