KanyiDaily had reported how Fr Larbi was caught on camera kissing the three female students in their mouth, one after the other, while on the alter.

The video was widely condemned and Fr Larbi was relieved of his duties by the Anglican Church of Ghana which runs the St. Monica’s College of Education.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the priest apologized for the kiss which he said was “an attempt to add a human touch” to the church service in honor of the students for their excellent performance.

“This unfortunate incident happened during a Church Service in appreciation of the Level 300 students, who will be going for their Macro Teaching (Off-Campus Teaching Practice) when college resumes the next academic year, by the College’s Chaplaincy Board.

“The three students seen in the video performed extraordinarily well and were, therefore, called to be appreciated by the Chaplain. An attempt to add a human touch resulted in the scene in the video.

“Accordingly, I am sincerely sorry for my actions seen in the video. I seemed to have taken a number of things for granted. I did not think my behaviour through, and I admit that the act and its setting are wrong even in the absence of Covid-19.

“I sincerely apologise to my Archbishop, the entirety of the Anglican Communion, the College, the affected students and their families, and the generality of the public.

“I pray for forgiveness from all and sundry and plead that you hold me in your prayers during these trying times. May God bless us all,” the statement reads.
