South Africa: Police Sunday Celebrations

Every year, the Catholic Church in the SACBC celebrate the Police Day on the 29th January on the theme “unite in prayer against crime and corruption in South Africa”. Crime and corruption in South Africa have become a threat to society. The rate of homicide, rape, domestic violence, kidnaping, robbery, hijacking, child molestation has been on the increase.


Travelling companions

To use a phrase from Pope Francis, all of us are called to wake up the world. How do we do this? By living and communicating the message of Jesus Christ. Our Missionary way of life is part of that communication of the Word, of how our humanity was saved through God’s loving action and how the way we live our humanity must reflect the loving kindness of God. Our life is missionary and our formation should not be oriented only towards personal growth but also how we are to care for God’s people. Hopefully our formation is not only to produce administrators or managers but people who are brothers and sisters and - ‘travelling companions’.

Sr Sheetal Parmar clearly is quite a phenomenon.


Mill Hill Missionaries in East Africa meet to reflect on humble service

The annual assembly for the Mill Hill missionaries working in Uganda and Kenya was held on the 3rd to the 7th of January at Ukweli Pastoral Centre in Kisumu. 36 members from various missions were able to attend the assembly. Despite the decline in numbers, it was an assembly with more members from the South and East than West, signaling the shift in the demographics of the society. For the first time the average age for the assembly was under 40, a sign of a vibrant, enthusiastic and hopeful new breed of missionaries ready to carry on the mantle.
