When Purple goes green
WHEN PURPLE GOES GREEN
In growing the Green Movement in the Anglican Church, when Bishops become involved in a hands-on way , it is inspiring to their followers.
Bishop Cleophas (Matabeleland) and Bishop Chad (Harare) officially opened the inaugural St Agnes Guild National Conference in Harare. More than 2000 girls camped at St Mary’s Mission about 30km outside Harare from 21-24 April.
The two bishops donned green overcoats over their purple cassocks and planted trees with their wives as a symbol of the church’s commitment to Earthkeeping.
The next day the guild chairpersons planted an orchard before they led the girls on a march and clean up at a nearby shopping centre.
