by Bishop José Luis
Every year, during the month of February, those serving as “catechists” in our parishes and outstations, come together to Manzini to be commissioned (sent!) by the bishop. Our diocese is blessed by having hundreds of them.
Due to the celebration of a wedding at the Cathedral, the celebration was moved to the “Salesian chapel” nearby. The more than 200 catechists that arrive from every parish in our diocese could hardly fit in the church. The heat of the day was a serious challenge but the joyful spirit kept the celebration alive.
