PRESIDENT & Chairman of Groupe Nduom (GN), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has built a chapel for use by his family and the surrounding community.
The Church, which is situated on the compound of his Hill Top home in Elmina, Central Region, is known as the Holy Family Church.
On Wednesday, January 3, 2018 the Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, His Grace Mathias Kwabena Nketsia, commissioned and dedicated the church to God and praised the business mogul for his deeds.
The dedication was preceded by a Special Mass, which was presided over by Archbishop Nketsia. He was supported by a number of priests including Rev. Fr. Gym, Monsignor Myers, Monsignor Essilfie, Rev. Fr. Enningful and Rev. Fr. Martin.
He prayed for Dr. Nduom and his family for doing what is highly right in the sight of God.
He alluded to the biblical lesson where God asked David not to build Him a church but instead leave that to his son, Solomon, and the subsequent blessings that God gave to Solomon.
Present at the Special Mass were a number of Groupe Nduom managers who were in Elmina to attend an annual strategy session.
And though it is situated on a private facility, the public is invited to the chapel for their quiet time praying and meditation. A ‘way of the cross’ path is to be added for those who will be able to climb the hill to pray along the way.
Indeed it has been a long cherished dream of Dr. Nduom to build a church to demonstrate to the outside world his Christian faith.
His company, Groupe Nduom, he always testifies, is built on sound foundation of faith. And it is this same faith that has driven him and his wife, Mrs. Yvonne Nduom, to establish GN Foundation where Groupe Nduom subsidiaries contribute financially to support education, health and cultural causes including giving scholarships to brilliant but needy students.
The GN Foundation also undertakes social and community works like the building of dormitories for schools, community libraries, schools, community centres and toilet facilities.
The Holy Family Church was constructed by Yorke Properties (YP), the estate development wing of Groupe Nduom. It has a seating capacity of close to 200 congregation, and it was built with pure stones from the GN Quarry located at Bokodo, Pershie in Elmina.
