Bishop Gaul Sponsored Walk: Harare to Kadoma
By Precious Shumba
Students at the Bishop Gaul College intend to raise US$25 000 from a sponsored walk from Harare to Kadoma starting on Thursday 1 December 2011 to Saturday 3 December, which will go towards the purchase of a utility vehicle for the College Principal.
Some of the money will be used to purchase a 30-seater bus for use by seminarians- theological students.
According to Philip Mutasa, the Treasurer of the Bishop Gaul Fundraising Committee a Friends of Bishop Gaul College Trust account has been set up with National Merchant Bank, Borrowdale Branch Account Number 260085368 into which donations from well-wishers can be made.
Bishop Gaul College is the National Anglican Theological College in the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA). The college has produced Bishops and over 100 priests since its establishment. The Archbishop of the CPCA Albert Chama is a product of the College.
Mutasa said the College currently has 23 seminarians (student priests) drawn from the Dioceses of Central Zimbabwe, Harare, Manicaland and Matabeleland. The students need transport to attend lectures and do pastoral work, amongst many other important community tasks. The Principal of the College is currently hampered in his work by the absence of a vehicle.
It is in this background that Bishop Gaul Seminarians are embarking on various fundraising efforts, one of which is a sponsored walk from Harare to Kadoma from Thursday 1st to 3rd December 2011.
Mutasa said well-wishers could support in various ways through prayers, joining the walk, the first aid and/or cheering teams during the walk, donating food, drinks, etc for consumption during the walk. The walk commences at 3am from Bishop Gaul College and it is expected to reach Kadoma on Saturday 3rd December.
