St Joseph’s feast at Christ the King

The St. Joseph Sodality at Christ the King will be celebrating the Feast of St. Joseph on the 18th March 2017 at our parish Christ the King.

Preparing for Lent

On Saturday 18 February, delegates from most of the parishes gathered at Bishop Ndlovu’s Hall (Bishop’s house) for a training in preparation for the coming Lenten Season.

Last year’s Jubilee of Mercy made us aware of the need of many people for “healing” and “forgiveness”. That is why the priests of the diocese suggested to follow the Jubilee with a year dedicated to those two important elements of our lives.

The first step will be done with the help of “Renew Africa”. Our Small Christian Communities will meet once a week and be guided by a booklet they have produced called: “Forgiveness and Reconciliation. Putting on the Mind of Christ” (by Jean Marie Hiesberger).

Sr Marie (from the USA) and Sr Aine (from Cape Town) came to the Diocese of Manzini to run the training. The diocese will be providing the material both in English and Swazi by the end of this month.
