Mgr Phalana

The 19-month wait of the diocese of Klerksdorp for a new Chief Shepherd has come to an end through the appointment of Monsignor Victor Phalana, hitherto, Vicar General to the Archbishop of Pretoria and Administrator of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, Pretoria.

Mgr Phalana was born in Odi (North West) on the 3rd April 1963, ordained on the 14th May 1988.  He has been active in various pastoral and administrative roles in the archdiocese.  Holding a licentiate in spirituality (Gregorian University) and a degree in African studies (Kenya), he participated in formation at the National Seminary.

Let us keep the church in Klerksdorp and Mgr Phalana in our prayers.
