Although my old father was not someone who attended this church regularly, Jenny Hands conducted the memorial service for him and the Church Administration facilitated the whole ceremony with her. We could not have wished for a better send-off for my father.

Amazing dedication of priests in charge there. Exemplary involvement of parishioners and youth. All visitors acknowledged and warmly welcomed and blessed. So many services provided during a week and weekends for spiritual retreat. Always there, when twice a year holidaying in Durban.
