2. Gratitude:

Sincere gratitude is extended to all who participated and contributed to in the Archdiocesan celebrations of this year such as the celebration of the World Meeting of Families, the synodal celebrations, the priestly ordination and the Pilgrimage to Fatima. Our unity of purpose in all these celebrations is very important. Let us be a synodal Church in everything.

3. Visiting Priests:

Any priest visiting another parish from within the Archdiocese or from outside the diocese requires the permission of the respective priest in charge to celebrate any sacraments. All priests from outside the Archdiocese need to produce a current letter of suitability from their Local Ordinary. This is a decision made by the Bishops for whole of Zimbabwe.

4. St. Paul's Hospital, Lupane:

I am very pleased to announce to you that after long efforts St. Paul's Hospital is now owned and administered by AMR Sisters. This hospital was handed over to the Rural District Council after the war. We wish the AMR Sisters many blessings.
