Welcome, Father Edward B. Baafi!
We extend a very warm welcome to our new Associate Pastor, Father Edward B. Baafi. Father's assignment began on Thursday, November 19, 2015. Father comes to us from Kumasi in the Diocese of Konongo-Mompong in Ghana. With a population of two million, Kumasi is the second largest ciy in Ghana, located in a tropical climate. He came to us on the evening of our first snow!
Age 44, Fr. Edward is the fifth of eight children in his family, with two sisters and five brothers in Ghana. He taught math, science, agriculture and English in middle school for two years then entered the seminary and was ordained a priest on August 5, 2006. He most recently served as a paster for six years at St. Stephen's Parish in Juaben, Ghana.
He now lives at Ste. Anne Parish's rectory on Mackinac Island, with alternative accommodations at the rectory at St. Ignatius Loyola when he is serving Immaculate Conception and St. Ignatius Loyola.
Father comes to us with many talents and a true heart for serving the Lord wherever he is called. He hopes to "show and share the love of God with our three parishes and be of real help to our bishop and Fr. Frank." He is a skilled cook, teacher and writer with a sense of humor!
