Tamale Jan. 11, GNA - Most Reverend Peter Porekuu Dery, Archbishop Emeritus of the Catholic Church in Tamale, has observed that priesthood was not a vocation for drunkards, womanisers or people wishing to make quick money.

He said the profession was divine and special and meant for people dedicated to serve God.

Archbishop Dery who made the observation when he ordained three deacons for the Damongo Diocese of the Church in Tamale, asked priests to salvage the image of the priesthood by eschewing all social vices and remain humble, respectful and honest in the performance their duties.
