Bi-centennial Opening Mass

A special Mass was celebrated at St Mary’s Cathedral on Sunday 25 June 2017 to mark the opening of a year of celebration and commemoration of 200 years of Catholic faith in Southern Africa. Archbishop Stephen Brislin (Archbishop of Cape Town and President of the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference) was the principal celebrant, accompanied by more than 10 Bishops (including the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Peter Wells) and many of the priests and deacons of the Archdiocese of Cape Town. Religious Orders and Congregations were honoured in a special way for their role in building up the local Church. Below are some pictures of the event.
