The government of Ghana has imported a stone believed to be holy to help sanctify the yet-to-be-completed National Cathedral.
During the ground-breaking ceremony of the Cathedral, Israel’s Ambassador to Ghana, Shani Cooper presented the stone to President Akufo-Addo at the sod-cutting ceremony to pave way for the actual work which is expected to begin on Friday, March 6, 2020, in Accra.
The stone, according to her, will symbolize the sacredness of the land earmarked for the project as Christians regard Jerusalem to be the most sacred site in the world.
She added that Isreal’s involvement in the construction of the Ghana National Cathedral will strengthen ties between the two countries.
The interdenominational Christian Cathedral, when completed, will have a 5,000 seating capacity with chapels, a baptistery, a music school, an art gallery, and a Bible museum.
