Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church inaugurated

LEPHALALE — The dedication of Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church and the blessing of the presbytery and parish hall took place on Sunday 27 August on the church grounds.
Bishop Jeremiah Masela, Bishop of Polokwane Diocese attended the occassion.
The proceedings started with the blessing of the presbytery by Bishop Masela and the reading of the plaque was done by Mrs RD Maake. The crowd moved to the parish hall for the ribbon cutting ceremony which was followed by the revealing of a plaque with the words: Saint Anthony Hall was officially blessed and opened by Rt Rev Bishop Madimetjia Jeremiah Masela. The reading of the plaque was done by Mr Oskar Albrecht.
With the dedication of the church building the reading of the plaques was done by Mr Phodius Machaba and Mr Assis Pontes.
The church choir entertained all present with their wonderful voices and the singing of hymns. The Polokwane Diocesan Catholic Church choir sang spiritual songs right through the ceremony.
After the church ceremony trees were planted to remind the future congregations of this wonderful and fruitful day.
Mr Assis Pones, on behalf of the Pontes family, read out of Ezekiel 47:1-2, 8-9 and 12 and Mrs Maake read out of 1 Corinthians 3:9c-11, 16 and 17.
The words in 1 Corinthians 3:9-11 reads: “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” Words that can just as well be meant for the Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church in Lephalale.
The late Renier Roos was the architect of the buildings on the premises.
