The program was such that on Saturday, the ladies were spiritually developed by presenters who did justice to given themes:

  • The Rosary of Knots by Sr. Alexia
  • CWL theme ‘Thuma Mina’ by Fr. Mswane
  • Holy Mass. The homily by Fr. Ndwandwe dealt with the individual obligation of being ‘Sent’ by The Lord.
