Shepherds on the Green: A Relaxing Day off for Priests
After the success of the inaugural gathering in 2016, priests from all around the country can once again experience a day of fun and relaxation at the Radio Veritas Shepherds on the Green event on Monday, November 27.
Games, pampering, prayer and a chance to relax await priests at the Benoni Country Club in Gauteng.
The day will kick off early with a breakfast laid on for the visitors, following which they can take to the country club’s scenic trail for cycling, walking or running. Golf, soccer, tennis, bowls, squash and a variety of board and table games will also be on offer.
Catholic men’s volunteer group the Radio Veritas Warriors has organised Shepherds on the Green, and warrior Boycie Ntlwane encourages the faithful to show appreciation of their priests by buying them tickets.
All Parishes Around the Country Can Send their Priest
“Our priests dedicate their lives to us with love, and this fun day is one way we can reciprocate that love. We would like to have champions in all parishes around the country, who will ensure that no priest or bishop is left out, and that all priests from Botswana to Swaziland and Durban, Limpopo to the Cape, have a ticket and will be joining the fun,” said Mr Ntlwane.
Parishioners are requested to buy tickets for their parish priests and for those priests not in parishes.
Tickets are R1500 and cover everything, including a three-course prizegiving dinner.
