Confirmations in Roodepoort, 25th October 2003

Confirmations: How beautiful to see so many new Soldiers of Our Lord Jesus Christ! Eleven were confirmed by Bishop Williamson in Zimbabwe on the 19th of October, another 26 in Roodepoort on the 25th of October and another five in Durban on the 2nd of November. Let us thank God for this gift and pray that these souls may remain firm in the faith and in the gifts of the Holy Ghost.

It is unfortunately, a rare event that all priests and brothers of the Society in Southern Africa come together. This time we got it right. Perhaps the biggest priests retreat in Southern Africa up till now! His excellency Bishop Williamson came to preach a beautiful retreat to us all from Monday 20th of October to the 25th. Below is a little photo to commemorate this joyful event.
