ANGLICAN ‘YOUTH UNDER CONSTRUCTION’: Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Fifty youth from 4 parishes of Kopanong Archdeaconry in the Diocese of St Mark the Evangelist, Limpopo, had a conference on 22 July at St Matthews, Seshego. Our Archdeaconry Chaplain, Thabang gave a presentation on human trafficking. It was very insightful and emotional.

Human trafficking is the 2nd largest crime in the world: approximately 450 000 people are trafficked in Africa every year, children as young as 4 become sex workers, domestic workers from other countries are exploited, and it generates an income of $32 Billion a year. It is in fact a form of slavery. Those being trafficked lose their identity and dignity in the process. They are emotionally and physically abused and introduced to drugs and prostitution.

We were given examples as to how one could be lured into this hideous crime: false adverts, getting lifts (hitch hiking), and sharing too much information and befriending people we don’t know on social media. We discussed ideas for what to do in their parishes to raise awareness of this crime: creating a social media group, making a video and taking pictures with messages against human trafficking, doing plays and presentations in church on a Sunday and perhaps finding a victim /survivor to share their story.

A lot of people think that this is not a serious offense because it is not happening to them personally or because it is hardly spoken about, but the youth now realise how serious it is. We thank the committee for their commitment so that this ministry can grow from strength to strength.

The youth also took time to give back to the community. Food donations were made to St Matthew’s homework club, as the ladies running this programme are funding this from their own pockets.

Worshippers commemorate St Manche Masemola

St Manch Masemola

Over 5 000 congregants and members of the clergy of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa recently gathered at the grave of Manche Masemola in the deep rural parts of Ga-Marishane Village to commemorate and celebrate her life.
Masemola is one of ten 20th century martyrs whose statues grace the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey in London.
Koketso Masrishane, member of the Ga-Marishane congregation said the church’s Calendar of Saints marks the annual commemoration of the life and sainthood of Masemola on the first Sunday of February.
Elaborating on the background of the event, Marishane stated that Anglicans began to visit the gravesite from as early 1935.
Masemola, a teenager at the time of her death on 2 February 1928, was murdered by her parents for going against their will and preparing to be baptised in the Anglican Church. She was declared a martyr within ten years of her death. Her mother converted to Christianity in 1969 and was baptised.
“In Westminster Abbey a structure dating to at least the 15th century with ten empty niches set among sculptures of saints and allegorical figures like Mary, Truth, Righteousness and Peace, was designated to honour martyrs of the 20th century. So far, only two Africans are recognised and acknowledged there, Masemola and Janani Luwum, Archbishop of the Church of Uganda.
