Our Religious Sisters just like our priests are some of the hardest working members of the Church.
At Christ the King the Servite Sisters of Swaziland work every day, every weekend and on every holiday to prepare for the celebration of the Mass.
Over and above this duty at Christ the King they teach sacraments, manage the preschool and teach at our High School.
Their input cannot be taken for granted. I don’t even think they get a day off as priests do.
As a sign of appreciation, it is now the policy at Christ the King Parish (Hlatikulu) to celebrate or recognise our Religious Sisters and priests’ birthdays. This is a sign of our appreciation of what they do for us and the Church.
On Sunday 17th December 2017, parishioners were celebrating our two sisters’ birthdays Sr Claudia Mamba and Sr Immaculate Mamba.
Though very difficult to ascertain what presents to give persons who have chosen before God to leave a life of poverty, the congregants showered the Sisters with gifts.
The parish priest Father Pius Magagula thanked parishioners for this gesture.
