The Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Good Shepherd, Zimbabwe, gathered in Harare for their Custodial Chapter during the first week of June.
This important gathering takes place every three years. It is a time of prayer, discussion and discernment, as the friars reflect on their life and ministry.
A new leadership team was also chosen for the next three years. The new Custos is Naison Manjovha.
Thomas Makamure, Fanuel Magwidi, Muqhelisi Sibanda and Jean Claude Hakizuwera were elected as Councillors to assist Naison in his service to the brothers.
The Provincial Minister from Ireland, Aidan McGrath, preside over the Chapter and the elections.
After the Chapter concluded Fr Aidan, the Custos and Council met to make appointments to various ministries within Zimbabwe.
Please keep our brothers and the people they serve in your prayers.
