This weekend was a very important and a very happy one for St Patrick’s Missionary Society with the ordination of two young men to the missionary priesthood in our Society. On Saturday May 28th, Rev William Banda was ordained in Lusaka, Zambia, at the Cathedral of the Child Jesus, Lusaka by Archbishop Telesphore George Mpundu. Rev Martin Kavisu was ordained in Kitui in Kenya by Bishop Anthony Muheria, Bishop of Kitui. Join us in congratulating and praying for William and Martin and their families.
