Cardinal visits South Africa to meet brother Bishops

posted on 25 January 2008

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-OConnor and Bishop Crispian Hollis are visiting South Africa to meet their brother Bishops and to support the mission of the local Church.

They arrive in South Africa this weekend and will return at the end of next week.
The invitation was extended by Cardinal Napier, Archbishop of Durban. The visit takes place during the plenary meeting of the South African Bishops Conference at Marianhill in KwaZulu Natal.  The Cardinal and Bishop Hollis will also be making pastoral visits to local Church projects in KwaZulu Natal.

Cardinal Murphy-OConnors visit follows Cardinal Napiers visit to the UK last year and visits by a delegation of Bishops from England and Wales to South Africa the previous year as the long-standing links between the two countries have recently been further strengthened.
