St Theresa's Cathedral wins choral competition

HARARE - It was a blissful weekend for all the Catholic followers in the Midlands when Gweru St Theresa’s Cathedral topped this year’s Gweru Diocese Catholic Choral Competition held in Zvishavane at the weekend.

The choral competition drew participants from Kwekwe, Gweru Chirumhanzu and Zvishavane.

The towns had equal representation in the day long fun fair, meant to praise the Lord.

Father Dzingai of Gweru St Theresa’s Cathedral was happy to see his choir emerge the best choir ahead of reigning champions at the day-long music feast.

The priest who escorted his choir said this event is based on the church tradition of keeping together the glories of happiness and unity in Christ through singing, praising and worship.

In an interview the priest said, “This was such a happy moment to cherish as a family in God, there is nothing that surpasses celebration for such an achievement.

“And may God bless us,” said Father Dzingai.
