PALM SUNDAY CELEBRATIONS: Holy Family Parish, Waterval, Witbank Diocese

Scholastic Manuel Quembo has been assigned to us this year for his missionary service. He is doing his missionary service in the Waterval community. At this beginning of his full-time pastoral missionary life, we pray that he will receive all the graces that he will need from our loving God.

Puno - Thanksgiving Celebration:

On December 6, 2020, the Holy Family Parish, Waterval Mission held its PUNO, or the Thanksgiving Mass for the harvest.  We are well aware of the effects of Corona pandemic, and we anticipated that there would be less participation and also income this year.  But for symbolic reasons, as it has been our practice, in agreement with the Parish Pastoral Council, we decided to push ahead with this fundraising activity.

We were very much humbled by the presence and generosity of the people.  Most of our outstations, even the smaller ones, were represented and they offered the little they had.  It was very successful, filled with fun and laughter.  One parishioner offered a sala set sofa as her PUNO offering. 

Compared to the past practices, we also decided not to cook anything in order not to burden the people and to avoid any possible chance of spreading Corona virus.  People were very understanding, observing the health protocols, especially masks, sanitizers and social distancing.

We give thanks to the Lord of the harvest for providing us of our daily needs and for protecting us against the Pandemic.  One again, he showed to us His providence.
