My dear People of God
DIOCESAN CHOIR COMPETITIONS
The choirs of the Diocese met on September the 14th to celebrate our God-given gift of singing as they were competing for the quality of music in the Diocese.
We are very proud to have a singing Diocese. All the Parishes do sing our psalter, canticles and hymns. We no longer sing alone as we conduct the services in our Parishes and we can only thank God for the encouragement of the Diocesan Choir especially our Diocesan Choir Master and Chaplain. You are doing us very proud.
It was most encouraging to see so many people at the ordination of our eight Priests. The service was inspired, as always, by participatory singing, led by our Diocesan Choir. The College of Priests added heavenly awe to the dignity of the liturgy. It was indeed a humbling moment to preside over such an inspiring service seasoned by such a dynamic sermon. It was indeed yet another experience to be part of such a worshipping event.
ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS
Very soon Advent and Christmas will be upon us. I wish you well in the coming seasons. We are blessed to be part of a long standing tradition of observing these events. Without Jesus as part of our salvation history we can do nothing. We can have no claim in anything. As we celebrate His holy Incarnation I pray that our strength and will to love and serve Him may be renewed. I pray that we may be more loving in all we do so that people around us may see us as children of God who are able to live like a family of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvellous light.
Enjoy your festive season and may you see the light of the new year.
Yours affectionately in Christ
