Having been duly ordained as a Superintendent minister, she was officially ushered into this high office with special divine service.
The spirit filled and solemn ceremony attracted over 1000 people- church members, Bishops, Past Presiding Bishops, Ministers and their wives, family members, invited guests and friends of the Superintendent Minister and her spouse.
The induction service was officiated by the Rt. Rev. Samuel Kofi Osabutey, Bishop of the Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church and supported by the Diocesan Lay Chairman Bro. Joseph K. Addo, Synod Secretary Very Rev. Victor B. Boyetey, Diocesan Ministers and Past Presiding Bishops.
The Very Rev. Mrs. Doris Saah was presented to the Rt. Rev Osabutey by the Lay Diocesan Lay Chairman and the Bishop of the Accra Diocese afterwards presented the new Superintendent Minister for induction.
The Rt. Rev. Samuel Kofi Osabutey as it has been his style, invited a Minister of the Methodist Church, but outside the Accra Diocese to give the charge or sermon and the mantle fell on The Very Rev. Mrs. Comfort Ruth Quartey-Papafio; the Secretary of the Synod in the Sekondi Diocese.
Having been in that position before with rich experiences, she touched on the need to be bold, principled and diligent in pastoring the circuit. She charged the new superintendent to consider that position special as a woman and a mother.
The Superintendent Minister, The Very Rev. Mrs. Doris Saah thanked all those who came to grace the service. She was particularly grateful to all who shaped her from inspiration, Ministerial Formation, schooling, pastoral society and her mentors. The Methodist Church Ghana is grateful to all who came to support the induction service.
