Council 35 and Court 23 launch 40th, 30th Anniversaries


Council 35 and Court 23 of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of  Marshall in Hohoe and the Junior Order, Queen of Glory -17J have launched their 40th and 30th anniversaries respectively at a Mass at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Hohoe.

The Knights, Ladies and Juniors in full regalia participated fully in the Mass presided over by the Parish Priest, Reverend Father Brother Sebastian Ametefe with assistance from the Chaplain of St. Teresa’s College of Education Hohoe, Reverend Father Brother Bernard Tofah.


In his sermon, Reverend Father Ametefe stressed the need for Christians to live and work together in harmony as Jesus Christ has promised that where two or three are gathered in His name, there He is in their midst.


He said Christians must eschew fear and believe in Jesus Christ for He promised to always be with them.


He also congratulated the Noble Order in Hohoe for how far they have come and asked them to continue to play their roles as soldiers of Christ and for that matter the Catholic Church.


Launching the two anniversaries, the Noble Order recounted how the Council and Court started in August 1977 and christened as St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Hohoe with Past Supreme Knight (PSK) Sir Knight Emmanuel K. Q. Agbezuge and Most Respected Lady Sister Jane Johnson all of blessed memory as the First Grand Knight and Noble Lady respectively.


To sustain and see to the growth of the Order, the Junior branch of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall was inaugurated in August 1987, and christened Queen Of Glory – 17J with its chapter also at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Hohoe with Brother Phanuel Hevi and Sister Stella Abutiate as the First Junior Grand Knight and Junior Noble Lady respectively.


Grand Knight of Council 35, Brother John Justice Gbenu explained that the Marshallan stood for Catholic friendly Society and seeks to promote unity and love among members.


He said the Society’s aim is gathering young men and women for the work of God, and thanked the Catholic Church and all those who contribute in diverse ways to support the society.


Reverend Father Brother Bernard Tofah officially launched the two anniversaries and prayed that the Noble Order will have successful celebrations which is slated for later this year.


There was a delegation of some Brothers and Sisters from Council 6 and Court 4, Kpando and were led by Immediate Past Grand Knight (IPGK) Brother Edem Tanson.


The occasion was also used to mark Sir James Marshall Day which fell on May 7, 2017.
