Successful Probationers Workshop
Saturday the 8th September 2018 was our annual formators. Yes Fr "formators" and bakokoti workshop. Fr Lawrence Mduduzi Ndlovu our chaplain opened the session by reminding the formators of the immense responsibility as "depositors of our faith." As catholics we have our standard tools of the trade such as
1. The catechism of the catholic church
4. Relationship with the rosary and divine mercy
5. The catholic calendar.
Our job is to use them! We cannot assume that people know!
He reminded the formators that they owed it to the candidates to be PREPARED. The sodality was further reminded that although this was placed within the vice chairperson portfolio, we had to make sure that the BEST people were allowed to teach. He did not forget to reiterate the importance of attending the annual retreat by all.
Our president took over the baton with a welcoming message from Jer. 1V5. On His plan for us. Her analogy of boarding the sodality train which is bound to be uncomfortable but needed perseverance to reach the destination of the Heart of Jesus was apt.
Baba uNgcongo, as only he can, passionately shared on the origins of this great sodality, grounding us even more.
I can assure you that by the end of the day, you would have bought into the prayer that "Sekungathi bonke abangayazi leNhliziyo bangayazi bayithande baluqhonde uthando Lwayo"
