[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza attended the Seminar IN A TOWNSHIP CONTEXT in the CORAM DEO building of the Oosterlig Dutch Reformed Church in Pretoria. Ms Josephine Mhlongo spoke on her experience to the attentive packed audience as she launched the Alpha Course in the Township of Soweto in her Catholic Church. Earlier in the morning the Catholic Archbishop of Pretoria gave the opening welcome address at this conference attended by many churches in South Africa and in the African region including Madagascar.
The Alpha Course Conference has encouraged greater Christian unity at the peoples- laity level in the worlwide Church and also at the official Church level with all the Churches committed to a new evangelisation of our societies. Alpha Course is the new tool for Evangelisation and Mission to serve the people in our broken world. '' I am among you as one who serves '' says Jesus Christ our Lord.
