Manzini, 13 May, 2021 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Several decades have passed since the passing on of Bishop Aloysius Isaac Mandlenkhosi Zwane who shepherded the people of God in the Catholic Diocese of Manzini in Swaziland in the Ecclesiastical Province of Johannesburg in South Africa.
But the compassion that the Bishop showed the vulnerable, especially the migrants and refugees who sought refuge in South Africa during his tenure, lives to date.
To keep the work of Bishop Zwane alive, the Catholic Diocese of Manzini that is within the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) has been running the Bishop Zwane Memorial Lecture every year, a platform on which discussions on key issues affecting society are held.
The leadership of the Diocese announced on Wednesday, May 12 the theme for this year’s lecture as, “We dare to dream of a Peaceful Southern Africa: Reflections of Pope Francis’ Fratelli Tutti.”
Slated for Saturday, May 22, the lecture is expected to be conducted at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Assumption, Manzini.
