Time to treat our Priests
The Shepherds On the Green is back, bigger and better!
After the resounding success of the inaugural edition in 2016, Priests from all around the Country can once again have a day of fun and relaxation at the Radio Veritas Shepherds On the Green at the Benoni Country Club on Monday, 27 November – and you are requested to make it possible for the Priests you love.
Games, pampering, merriment, prayer and a chance to relax await Priests. Parishioners are requested to buy tickets for their Parish Priests and for those Priests who are not in parishes.
The Benoni Country Club is a world-class facility in Ekurhuleni (Johannesburg Archdiocese) in Gauteng and it will be prepared for the exclusive enjoyment of shepherds of the church.
The day will kick off early with a lavish breakfast laid out for the visitors, following which they could take to the Country Club’s scenic trail for cycling, walking and/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, organises the Shepherds On The Green, and warrior Boycie Ntlwane encourages the faithful to show their appreciation of their pastors by buying them tickets.
“Our Priests dedicate their lives to us with love and this fun day is one way we could reciprocate that love,” said Ntlwane.
“We would like to have Champions in all parishes around the Country who will ensure that no Priest or Bishop is left out, they will see to it that all Priests from Botswana to Swaziland and Durban; Limpopo to the Cape have a ticket and will be joining the fun.”
Tickets are R1500 and cover all games, grooming and pampering treatments, entertainment, beverages, meals and a three course prize-giving dinner to round off the day.
For tickets please:
1. Pay by EFT to: Radio Veritas, Nedbank account 1128 863 111, Branch code 187 505 (universal code); then
3. Buy a physical ticket and pay cash at a promotion event near you.
