St. Joseph Sodality gives to new parish

by Maduduza Zwane

A Twenty-Five-member delegation for St Joseph Sodality in the Diocese of Manzini visited St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish on the 23rd February 2020 for the purpose of recruiting married men at the parish to be members of the St. Joseph Sodality.

When the delegation got to Siphofaneni, it was difficult for them to locate the Parish because there was no road sign showing where the Parish was at Siphofaneni.

The Sodality felt there was dire need for a road sign to show where the home of the Word of God is at Siphofaneni.
The Sodality undertook to provide a road sign for the Parish. On Thursday 2, April 2020 observing the Social distance, and having washed their hands, Thamsanqa Mpanza and Gcina Mndzebele presented the Road Direction  Sign on behalf of the Sodality to Sanele Dlamini the Parish Pastoral Council Chairman on behalf of the St Ignatius of Loyola Parish.  Father Alwyn the Parish Priest was over the moon and said ” Thank you very much for this precious gift for the parish. May God bless St. Joseph Sodality”.

It is our view as a sodality that sodalities and other commissions of the Diocese should always come forward to assist newly established parishes with such basic needs as this one and pews for their churches to kick of well.

Josefa Ocwebileyo! Sikhulekele!
Izwi laba yinyama! Lahlala Phakathi Kwethu!
Akadunyiswe uJesu Khristo! Kuze kube phakadze
Wash your hands! Observe Social Distance! Stay at Home and Pray for the end of the Corona Epidemic!
