The Archbishop of Pretoria Archdiocese in South Africa has lauded members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers (CFC) for not only imparting academic lessons but also teaching “life values” to those enrolled in their learning institutions.
In his Wednesday, September 8 homily during Holy Mass marking the centenary celebration of the Christian Brothers College, CBC Mount Edmund School, Archbishop Dabula Anthony Mpako said that CFC members had become a blessing to learners.
“The Brothers through this College were not only transmitting academic knowledge, but they were also giving those life values,” Archbishop Mpako said about the CFC members’ ministry at the Archdiocese of Pretoria–based Catholic institution that was established on 8 September 1922.
He added, “Learners were not only given academic formation, but you were taught about what it is that really gives life. Living in a relationship with God and living as God would have us live, that's what gives life.”
The South African Archbishop acknowledged with appreciation the role of Christian Brothers at the Catholic institution that is rooted in teaching Gospel Values “with Jesus Christ at the centre”, saying that CFC members have been “a blessing to all the learners who have gone through this College.”
