SAM_2048The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has appointed

Rev Fr Jeremiah Madimetja MASELA, as Bishop of Polokwane.

Apostolic Administrator of the same diocese since 09 December 2011, Fr Masela was born on 28 June 1958 in Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Doornspruit, studied at Pax College and did his priestly formation at St John Vianney Seminary before being ordained a priest on 15 December 1984 at his home parish.

As a priest, Fr Masela has served his diocese in various parishes including as administrator of the Sacred Heart Cathedral (2005-2008). He was a Vicar General from 1990-2004 when he joined the formation staff of his alma mater, St John Vianney Seminary as spiritual director and lecturer. On his return, his predecessor Bishop Paul Nkhumishe appointed him Vicar General again. He holds a Master’s Degree in Spirituality from St Augustine’s College.

We wish him well in his new ministry.
