Anglican Church Releases Statement After A Priest Of The Church Kissed Female Students

The Anglican Church has reacted to the viral video of one of its priests kissing 3 girls on the mouth.

The girls, who are students of St. Monica College of Education in Ghana, seemed uncomfortable but had to oblige as their priest kissed them on the altar, in front of the entire congregation (Read HERE).

The priest has now been identified as Most Rev’d  Dr Cyril Kobina Ben-Smith.

The Anglican Church said that it is “saddened” by the priest’s action and investigation is underway.  The Church added that the “Priest would be dealt with in accordance with the norms and values of the Anglican Communion where morality is extremely revered in the Church.”

The statement adds that efforts are being made to “engage the students through counselling sessions to avert any psychological issues that may arise as a result of the viral video”.
