The new Archbishop of Durban is appointed

His Holiness, Pope Francis, has appointed Bishop Siegfried Mandla Jwara, till now the Apostolic Vicar of Ingwavuma, as the Archbishop of Durban.

Cardinal Napier had this to say about the new appointment: “God had chosen a man with a long history of going into unknown territory to sow the seeds of faith.

“I invite the faithful of the Archdiocese of Durban to open their hearts and minds and arms to welcome and accept Bishop Siegfried Jwara CMM who has been appointed with effect from 12pm today, June 9, 2021.

“The Lord has given us Archbishop Siegfried, the Lord has taken away Archbishop Abel, blessed be the name of the Lord. Please pray for all of us that we may welcome and do the will of God, in the way that Jesus has called each of us to do.”
