Warm Greetings to you from St Veronica guild in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN.
Salvation is for free, but only those granted are saved. Hosea 4 verse 6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Most St Veronica members had given up and looked down upon themselves, but today, they are women of wisdom and courage and determined to soldier on in life. They are full of confidence and manage their businesses, some are gainfully employed and others are at universities etc. They are responsible for the upkeep of their children. As a guild they socialise and share their problems with deep concern for each other.
Achievements and Challenges
Executive meetings for 2015 and 2016 were held as planned.
2015 conference was held at St Cyril Church Chivhu on 2 – 5 October. The Theme was” Ndicharamba ndichinamata chero zvikaoma sei,” readings from Daniel 3 v 19 – 24 and Acts 5 v 27 – 32. Time for testimonies was very touching as they shared their unpleasant experiences in life.
Violet Musuna tied the knot with Tinashe Dongo, a St. Benedict guild member, on 30 April 2016. They are both from St Peters, Mutoredzanwa. Both parties were showered with presents from MU and St Veronica guilds.
In 2015 selling of hot chips at Shearly Cripps did not realize significant income but the guild will keep on trying until a break through comes. In 2016 the guild did catering at Lady Day celebrations from 01-03 April. Money is also raised through selling St Veronica material, golf t-shirts, books and cards. These items are sold from the MU office
On a sad note, Eunica Kakono of St Faith Mudoti passed on in February. St Veronica guild members attended the funeral and gave their colleague a befitting farewell. Mothers’ Union is our shoulder of comfort to lean on; they gave great support towards the funeral. The Guild also lost one of its members, Anna Mercy Tavambirwa who was laid to rest on 18th of July 2016 at St John’s Chifamba. May their dear souls rest in eternal peace.
