Anniversary of the consecration of a church

On the 19th of August 2012, quite a nice group of parishioners from Sada, Tambo and Thornhill joined the congregation of St. Mary, Queen of Peace at Ekuphumleni in the annual celebration remembering the consecration of their church in the year 2000.

This is usually a prestigious, solemn event that we do not want to miss.

After a well-attended Morning Prayer, we all went outside and assembled at the gate of the church premises. The church choir sang in vibrant, heavenly sweet voices, proclaiming that Jesus cares for us and invites all of us.

We re-entered the church with the congregation responding “I rejoiced when they said to me ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord’”

After Mass, a nicely prepared lunch was served to all of us.

Although St. Mary, Queen of Peace is a small congregation, we can describe it as a very active and dynamic one and that, thanks to the inspirational and pastoral direction of Father H. Schoeder.
