by Maduduza Zwane

The Catholic Women’s League in the Diocese of Manzini ascended to Christ The King Parish on May 19th, to grace the Parish by pinning (Kwamukela laba Nqonqotsako) six members at the Parish.

The Catholic Women’s League does charity work, care for the needy with love, and are very much concerned about this benevolent duty. The league has connection worldwide and links hands with people of other religions. Members are motivated to do their charity work by their theme “Thuma Mina” taken from Isiah 6:8 (Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send?

St. Joseph Sodality Feast

by Maduduza Zwane

Last Saturday the 23rd February 2019, twenty-four (24) members of the St. Joseph Sodality in the Diocese of Manzini met at the Bishop’s House to mainly deliberate on the preparations for the Feast of St. Joseph this year.

The feast of St. Joseph is held on March 19 each year to show hospitality to the patron saint of fathers, families, workers, and the Church . Because the 19th falls midweek, the feast will be held on the 23rd March. This year the sodality resolved that the feast of St. Joseph be held at St. Philips in partnership with the Commission for Justice and Peace. There will be presentations on church issues, the life of St. Joseph, health matters and justice in peace. Refreshments will be shared with the disadvantaged and vulnerable. All these activities will happen after mass which will be followed by an adoration of the Eucharist and benediction. Continue reading “St. Joseph Sodality Feast”
