Men of St Anthony’s in Greyville Innovate for Mother’s Day
Every year on Mother’s Day, men of St Anthony’s church in Greyville, Durban, come together very early on Sunday morning to prepare a special breakfast for the parish’s mothers, with fried bacon and eggs, and all the trimmings.
This year, because of the lockdown and churches being closed, the breakfast obviously was not possible.
So at short notice, the men and parish priest Fr José Alton dos Santos came up with a plan to make Mother’s Day special in another way.
Within a day they created the poster above.
The image was then posted on the parish’s Facebook page on Sunday morning.
For the mothers of the parish, the message—and the effort that went into coordinating its production—was special indeed.
Now everybody hopes and prays that next year on Mother’s Day, the men of the parish will be able to return to their stoves for those bacon-and-eggs breakfasts.
