30 January, 2017


It has been a real sorrow for us, that, for various reasons, since Father Jeremias left in October 2015, we have not been able to have our regular recollection days. So it was really good news when we found that a new Comboni Father Rafael, from Spain, was willing to give us a whole weekend of recollection and sharing at the Comboni Mission in Maria Trost, Lydenburg, Mpumulanga. Due to the fact that our arrangements were fairly last-minute, several people who wanted to come had already committed themselves to other activities. But we went ahead on the last weekend of November, and our small group had a most enriching weekend, studying and sharing on our Holy Father’s publication entitled: The Joy of the Gospel. It took 4 to 5 hours travelling, but was well worth it. It was so refreshing to get away from the city in the heart of nature, and we all went home very happy. We thank Father Rafael for the huge amount of work he put into making our weekend such a success. Our next weekend will be during Lent, on the first weekend of April, again with Father Rafael. We invite all and anyone interested to join us - book it in your diary NOW. The one photo below shows the group, from left to right, Diana, lawyer Dr Etienne (Rwanda), Steven Wanyoike from Kenya, Eddie Dunia from DRC, Jane Wanyoike and Bertrand (Rwanda) and the other photo shows Father Rafael (right) leading our discussion.
