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, Saints Peter and Paul, Pray for us.
Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven and Patroness of South Africa, Pray for us.
+ BISHOP V.H. PHALANA
