Botswana: Gaborone Diocese
On Saturday 5 October 2019, the Diocese of Gaborone launched the Extraordinary Missionary Month with a celebration for the entire Diocese at the Christ the King Cathedral in Gaborone. The Eucharistic celebration presided by Bishop Frank Nubuasah began with a procession in which all the Parishes were represented and displayed their specific banner for the EMM. The creativity and commitment of the parishes was evident in the varied colourful banners exhibited. The Eucharistic celebration was a wonderful expression of the faith of the various Christian Communities and their commitment to live their Baptismal commitment as Missionary Disciples. All the Faithful present were reminded that they had to live their Baptism and bring the Good News to others, no one can be a mere observer, if one is Baptised then one is Sent as well.
