Pascha in Kolwezi, Congo

with 4 comments

A little something as we come to the end of Paschal-tide.

This Paschal celebration took place at the Cathedral of Saint George.

Kolwezi is in the Holy Diocese of Katanga under the Patriarchate of Alexandria and All Africa. It is served by monks from the Holy Monastery of Gregoriou on Mount Athos.

This is a very active Orthodox diocese, with 105 parishes, 40 priests and over 2000 youth attending its ecclesiastical schools, and its own ecclesiastical radio station among other things. It baptizes an average of 1200-1500 people a year.
