Feast of Mother Cabrini

On Saturday, the St. Philip’s community gathered together to celebrate the life and work of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, without whom Cabrini Ministries would not exist. We celebrated Mother Cabrini with a mass followed by a wonderful time of fellowship which included singing, dancing, a karate demonstration by a few of the students, as well as lots of delicious food. The students who stay at the hostel sang “We Are the World” and did a beautiful job. It was a great day of joy and gratitude for all that Mother Cabrini has done to help improve the lives of the poor.

Saturday was also a perfect opportunity for us to celebrate Cabrini Ministries Swaziland’s 10th anniversary and to honor the staff members who have been with us for 10 years and for 5 years. Those who have been working for Cabrini for 10 years are Sr. Diane, Mr. Pius Mamba, Lucia, Jane, Jabu, Zodwa Gama, and Foto. Celebrating 5 years with Cabrini Ministries, we have France, Nonhlahla, Busisiwe, and Nok’Thula. The things that we do here could not happen without the hard work and dedication of those who we are privileged to have working among us. We are so blessed to have them as a part of our Cabrini family.

The children carried a sign into mass that said "We are your children, Mother Cabrini."
