Cardinal Napier celebrates his 80th birthday – very quietly at home
The 8th of March this year, fell not only during the Covid restrictions, but also during Lent, the time of fasting and abstinence.
This birthday should also have heralded the official retirement of Cardinal Napier as Archbishop of Durban as he handed over to Archbishop Abel Gabuza. But God had other plans.
In keeping with both the pandemic restrictions and the season of Lent, there were no formal celebrations. But there was a birthday cake, and many good wishes.
Please join us in praying for Cardinal Napier, that he may continue to be blessed with health and strength, and also the partnership of your Missionary support, in this his 80th year, and beyond.
