JPThe Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference Justice and Peace Commission is deeply shocked by the tragic event and loss of life that took place in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 10 March 2021, during the students demonstration at Wits University.

Until the government finds the political will to enforce profound changes in the ethos of policing in our country, more such deaths are inevitable. Mthokozisi Ntumba joins a long list of people, by far the majority black men, killed or murdered by the SAPS. From Andries Tatane ten years ago in Ficksburg and the 34 dead at Marikana in 2012 to the shooting of Petrus Miggels in Uitsig, Cape Town at the beginning of lockdown last year, the SAPS kills on average two and half times as many people per capita of population as the American Police do, and eight times as many as their Canadian counterparts.

Noting therefore that the death of Mthokozisi Ntumba is a sign of structural problems in our policing system, we therefore call upon the Minister of Police to consider the following measures:

• He should take appropriate measures to de-militarize the police. It is now ten years since the National Development Plan called for this to be addressed and nothing has so far been done.

• He should stop rhetoric that encourages policy brutality. Over the years, there has been continued refrain from him and previous ministers that “the police must shoot to kill,” “use maximum force” and “use deadly force.”

• He should review the poor training received by the public order police officers, especially its over-reliance on the use of force when it is the black protestors, with no room for negotiation and many other non-violent intervention.

• He should ensure that there are consequences, not only for lower ranked police officers, but also command structure in charge of the operation that has resulted in loss of human life.

We wish to remind the Minister of Police that each loss of human life resulting from police brutality shocks our social conscience as a nation because human life is sacred and a gift from God Almighty. Jesus Christ came to give us this life to the full (John 10:10). We would like to reiterate the words of Pope Saint John Paul ll that: “every human being is endowed with a dignity that must never be lessened, impaired or destroyed but must instead be respected and safeguarded, if peace is really to be built up” (Address to the General Assembly of the United Nations Oct. 2, 1979).

The SACBC Justice and Peace extends to all the family and friends of the late Mthokozisi Ntumba its deepest sympathy and may his soul rest in eternal peace.

arch CTLetter from Bishop Sylvester David OMI

Auxiliary Bishop of Cape Town

To all the Faithful in the Archdiocese of Cape Town

It is with great sadness and alarm that we confirm the news that has been doing the rounds on Social Media viz. that the Cathedral had been vandalized and that a ciborium, a pyx, four silver candelabra, a gold plated chalice, and two gold plated patens have been stolen together with some money from the votive candles box. The consecrated hosts from the ciborium have been left inside the tabernacle but the host from the pyx has been removed. There has been desecration.

Although we are victims in this case, reparation has to be done and so we request all the faithful in the Archdiocese to join in with the Cathedral parishioners and to engage in the prayer which will soon be sent out to the Parish priests for distribution. It is important that the entire local Church engage in this as the Cathedral is the Mother church. This prayer does not replace other daily prayers but supplements them.

A further act of reparation is optional, but strongly recommended viz. those who have the means are asked to make an extra contribution to the account set up to feed the poor. The details are as follows:

Bank: Standard Bank

A/c name: Archdiocese of Cape Town Collections

A/c Number: 070248036

Branch name: Thibault Square

Branch code: 051001

For those who require it this is a current account.


We wish to thank you for the many expressions of the faith especially during this difficult time of the shutdown and wish you a meaningful Easter season.


Bishop Sylvester David OMI

VG: Archdiocese of Cape Town

Sacrificium Donation Image B 01 004My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“My dear people, since God has loved us so much, we too should love one another…” (1 Jn. 4:11). I greet you by wishing you a blessed 2021, a year that we give thanks to God, notwithstanding the heartache, confusion, fear, and anxiety brought on by the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic that is ravaging our country.  Let us continue to pray for the strength to encourage each other during these challenging times because God is always walking by your side.

Popes Francis writes that the period of Lent is a time of Fasting, Prayer and Almsgiving. Fasting, prayer and almsgiving, as preached by Jesus (cf. Mt 6:1-18), enable and express our conversion. The path of poverty and self-denial (fasting), concern and loving care for the poor (almsgiving), and childlike dialogue with the Father (prayer) make it possible for us to live lives of sincere faith, living hope and effective charity”(Pope Francis, Lent 2021).  

Every year, the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference organises the annual Lenten Appeal which is a collection that is taken in all parishes and dioceses within the Conference area during Lent.  This money is used for the works of the Conference such as: Justice and Peace, Communication, Liturgy, etc. and the assistance of the poor and needy. We are seeking new ways, to do the weekly collections for the Lenten Appeal during this season of Lent for 2021.  

We are appealing to all our Diocesan and Parish Pastoral Councils to look at options as to how we can continue to support the poor and needy and the works of the Church. We have one suggestion and that is to make the banking account details available to the people of God, for all of them to be able to contribute during this period of Lent. 

Once more the SACBC, Bishops Lenten Appeal Office would like to thank you for taking your time to look at this correspondence and consider how you will be open to new possibilities of supporting the works of the Church during this period of Lent. Attached is the poster we ask you to share with all the people of God especially those who do not have internet connections.

Let us continue to Believe, Love and Hope because this is how Jesus changes our lives on the journey through Lent. Keeping in mind the pillars of the Lenten journey, Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, not forgetting that this is a time for reconciliation and to be ready for the light of Easter.

bankdetailsWith thanks and prayers.

Bro. Ashley Tillek, OFM 

National Lenten Appeal Director

Blessed Sacrament soft edgeMy Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,  and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.
