St Francis of Assisi, Humansdorp
Sts Francis and Clare, patron saints of our Humansdorp and Jeffreys Bay churches respectively, were born and raised in Assisi, Italy, in the twelfth century.
The Kouga Catholic Communities of Sts Francis and Clare of Assisi strive at all times to bear faithful witness to Our Lord jesus Christ, striving to always live and present the Gospel and the teachings of The Roman Catholic Church.
This small but vibrant community is a relatively young one and has a relatively small number of parishioners - about 150 families all told, spread over a vast geographical area - approximately 10 000sq km.
Fr Joe Slattery is our part-time, dedicated pastor, ministering in the area for a part of every week.
We are a vibrant, welcoming community – as the many visitors who swell our Mass attendance figures at holiday times will attest.
The Parish is served by two beautiful new Churches: St Francis of Assisi in Humansdorp, and St Clare of Assisi in Jeffreys Bay.
Sunday Masses and the Triduum Celebrations suspended in the face of the Covid-19 threat.
We pray the Good Lord will preserve us, and help us through this crisis. We pray for the all victims of this scourge, their families and loved ones, and all care-givers, doctors, nurses, first responders and other emergency personnel.
For you has God commanded his angels to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you upon their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
