On the 04th to the 07th of September 2014, the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin, commonly known as the “Children of Mary”, held their Annual Conference at Christ the King Mission (Hlathikulu).
The sodality had as its theme the first part of the Marian prayer “Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with you…” which was explained by Fr. Sandile Mswane during the opening Holy Mass.
The conference was attended by more than 200 young girls and boys.
The sodality was honoured to have its guest speakers Rev. Fr. Dumisane Mazibuko who spoke of the importance and stages of Holy Mass; Sr. Lindiwe Sithole expanded on the topic “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit?” (1 Cor 6:19).
The sodality made sure that the young girls and boys are assisted to grow spiritually, generally (human development) and more on the understanding of the Blessed Virgin Mary. On the last day of the conference, the sodality was honoured to have the bishop of the diocese, the Rt. Rev. José Luis Ponce de Leon, who presided over holy Mass and welcomed knew members into the sodality.
