Southern Gauteng Annual Festival 2012

On Sunday 24 June, St Vincent de Paul, Bryanston attended the Southern Gauteng Annual Festival, held at La Salle College, Discovery. Despite being a cold, winter's day, the festival was well attended by Conferences from City and Northerns, Soweto and the West Rand.

Seated and ready!

The festival started with a welcome and introduction by Roy, the new incoming president of Southern Gauteng. This was followed by feedback from the various Conferences.

This was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the Conferences, in particular their successes and challenges-a perfect platform to learn from each other so that we can better fulfill our mission.

The festival was closed off with mass where new members were dedicated. We also had the handing over of presidency to Roy and Monica as the new presidents of Southern Gauteng and Bryanston respectively. We wish them both the best!!
