Shepherds on the Green a Resounding Success
Following the inaugural edition in 2016, the Radio Veritas Warriors together with Radio Veritas South Africa hosted their second annual “Shepherds on the Green” for priests from around the country on Monday the 27th of November 2017.
The Benoni Country Club played host to more than 120 priests from around the country in an event organised by local community radio station, Radio Veritas South Africa. The facility was prepared exclusively for the enjoyment of the Shepherds of the Catholic Church for the day.
The special day started out with a nutritious five-star breakfast provided by the country club, followed by the different sports and activities. The priests were able to partake in soccer games, cycling, golf, tennis, bowls, squash and a variety of board games.
Throughout the day, the priests were treated to massages, haircuts and general health check-ups by the Catholic Nurses Guild. Following the activity-packed day, the priests freshened up for the gala dinner. They were treated to a scrumptious three-course meal with entertainment and they were also thanked for their service to the community.
Radio Veritas Executive Director Fr. Emil Blaser OP said “The Shepherds on the Green event was a resounding success once more and I hope to see more priests attending the event next year”
This event was organised to show our priests the appreciation that they so often do not get for the work that they do for the church as well as their respective communities. Radio Veritas, as well as the Radio Veritas Warriors, are extremely proud of the way the event turned out.
