Blessed Gérard’s Feast

13th October 2001

This year’s great celebration of the Feast of our patron Saint was a wonderful occasion. Our member, Father Albert Herold O.S.B. of Mtunzini, was the main celebrant and gave an impressive sermon. Concelebrant, Father Michael Eich of Mainhausen, Germany, and all the new members could receive the medal of our brotherhood and those who have been members for five years received their jubilee certificates.

The President’s Award 2001

A special honour, which is awarded annually, was conferred on
Mr. Qinisani Wiseman Zulu for his outstanding service and loyalty.

President’s Council inaugurated

Our statutes provide for an advisory body of experts to facilitate the decisions of the President and Executive Council of our brotherhood. The first two members who were appointed to this position were Dr. Peter Martinez, who is an internationally renowned capacity in Astrophysics from the South African Astronomical Observatory in Cape Town and has a wide experience in international relations, administration and fundraising, and Dr. Roux Martinez, who practises trauma and transplant surgery in Cape Town. Although they live in Cape Town they have frequently come to Mandeni and spent more hours of service in our projects than many of our local volunteers.
