Dear Priests, Deacons, Religious and the Faithful of the Archdiocese of Bulawayo,
As we are in the second half of the year it may be good for us to evaluate the progress of the implementation of the theme of the year and the pastoral resolutions by parishes and associations. Monitoring and Evaluations are absolutely necessary for growth and development. Therefore I request each parish/mission and association to take an evaluation of the year with our theme “Evangelization through Holiness” upto now so that if something is lacking we could make necessary changes before we come to the AGM of the laity in November.
1. Gratitude: The Silver Jubilee as the Archdiocese of Bulawayo and 140 years of evangelization in Matabeleland together with the priestly ordinations was a great success due to the dedicated participation and generous contributions of many Catholics. I thank you all for the public manifestation of our faith in this Year of Evangelization through Holiness. Let us be evangelizers wherever we are.
