The COVID19 Coronavirus outbreak has made it necessary for the governments to place restrictions on public gatherings, among other things, as a best practice to contain the transmission of the virus – affecting the celebration of Holy Mass at our parishes.
In this time of COVID19 pandemic, Radio Veritas will provide daily spiritual communion through the broadcasts of weekday Mass at 12h30, for our Catholic community. “It’s an important time for Radio Veritas to fulfil its mission of evangelisation through the airwaves. One of the ways through which we do that is to bring Holy Mass to families where they are, to encourage them to pray together,” said Khanya Litabe the station manager.
The Holy Hour begins with the Angelus at 12h00, then listeners are afforded an opportunity to call in with their prayer requests before the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 12h30.
On Saturdays, Mass times are:
09h00 Sesotho / isiZulu
18h00 Sesotho / isiZulu
In this period of Lent, walk the Stations of the Cross during weekdays at 18h00, on Saturday at 06h30, and Sunday at 10h00. The Stations are also available in Sesotho on Saturday and Sunday at 05h00. From 17 to 25 March we join Our Lady Lourdes shrine every morning from at 6 to pray the Novena, through the Rosary, for the victims and those affected by Covid19 coronavirus.
