SEASON OF CREATION KICKSTARTS FOR SESHEGO PARISH (DIOCESE OF ST. MARK THE EVANGELIST)
On the 9th September, St. Matthew’s Parish (Commonly called Seshego Parish), outside Polokwane celebrated the season of creation under both themes water and waste. They dedicated to them both because the previous day there was a good rain and it was dry ever since early 2018. The diocesan environmental desk was acknowledging them for the good work of recycling which they have been doing since 2012. The coordinator Revd. Suzan Mahlase and assistant Revd. Lucia Komape have a team of 5 MU members whom they get to collect the plastic bottles. Their project is aimed at assisting the parish in building a much bigger church building, since it is a township parish and it being statistically growing.
With this project, they have made over R10000 for the past 5 years and they are being supported by the congregation, neighbours and their friends. This vibrant parish pledged to keep on addressing environmental issues and the recycling team have pledged to now become their own parish environmental desk. They also get assistance from the after-care project for school children for the grading of the bottles. Truly they felt motivated.
