The weekend of the 9th/10th of March was a very special time in our Diocese.
On 9th Fr Stephen Dintoe Letloenyane was consecrated as the 13th Bishop of our Diocese. The service took place at the Callie Human Auditorium on the campus of the University of the Free State and was an occasion to remember. Of course the Archbishop Thabo Makgoba was there, as well as many other Bishops, including Bishop David Bannerman and Dean William Mostert who are well-known to the “older” members of our congregation!
On 10th March here at our Cathedral we were proud to have Bishop Dintoe with us as his first task as Bishop was to install Fr Mosokotso Lazarus Mohapi as Dean.
The Revd Canon John Hall from Blackburn preached and Bishop Geoff Suffragan Bishop of Blackburn attended too. The service was followed by a lovely tea in the Hall.
