Welcome

Welcome to our newly designed Web site!

Welcome to the Diocese of Klerksdorp which continues the mission of the Catholic Church across KOSH Deanery, POTCH Deanery, WOLMARANSTAD Deanery and Ditsobotla/Tswaing Deanery.

I hope this developing website will reflect something of the life of the Diocese with its great diversity of towns, townships and rural communities – sharing together the Catholic faith. We welcome you to join us here on the internet.

“The Internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God.” (Pope Francis, 2014 Message for World Communications day)

I agree wholeheartedly with Pope Francis. The Internet is used to access myriads of information by millions of people. Therefore, in order to carry on the new evangelization, it is important for the Catholic Church to be a presence on the Web and to have information about the Catholic faith readily accessible through the use of the Internet. This information ensures that our Catholic people know about the Church and the diocese. By using this knowledge, they are better able to deepen their own faith and to evangelize their brothers and sisters as called for by Pope Francis. . Every baptized Christian is an evangelizer, a missionary as Jesus tells His disciples “… go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28:19).

PLEASE PROMOTE THIS WEBSITE AND CONTRIBUTE TO IT SO THAT WE CAN ALWAYS IMPROVE IT.

May our Diocesan Patrons: Sts Peter and Paul, Pray for us.
Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven and Patroness of South Africa, Pray for us.
+ BISHOP V.H. PHALANA

WORD AMONG US The Grace of Aging Gracefully A new book helps us appreciate the blessings of our golden years. BY LORENE DUQUIN

What is the “autumn of life” about, really? Are a person’s “golden years” simply a time for enduring greater physical limitations, aching for family members far away, or struggling with a sense of idleness? For first—time author Carolyn Bassett, the answer is a resounding “No!” Bassett paints a more proactive and vibrant picture of aging …

PERSONAL SPIRITUALITY Our Daily Love Reflections on 1 Corinthians 13 from Prayers for Catholic Couples

Compassion Means Accepting Others Being patient does not mean letting ourselves be constantly mistreated, tolerating physical aggression, or allowing other people to use us. We encounter problems whenever we think that relationships or people ought to be perfect, or when we put ourselves at the center and expect things to turn out our way. Then …

Receive the Living Bread Encountering the Lord at Mass BY THE WORD AMONG US

I am the living bread that came down from heave; whoever eats this bread will live forever. (John 6:51) In their book Sleeping with Bread, authors Matthew Linn and Dennis and Sheila Fabricant Linn tell the story of a group of orphans from World War II who had been rescued and taken to a refugee …
