Since the resignation of Sekuru Dieter Scholz in 2016, the diocese of Chinhoyi has been waiting patiently for a new bishop whom they were recently accorded. The diocese is currently in the midst of preparations as we speak for the Episcopal consecration of Rt. Rev. Mupandasekwa.
The diocese of Chinhoyi survived for a very long period depending on donor funds and now as we are trying to embrace self-reliance, the diocesan pastoral council fundraising committee held a fundraising dinner towards the ordination of Rt. Rev. Mupandasekwa at the CUT Hotel Chirorodziva conference room on the 10th of March 2018. The main purpose of the fundraising dinner was to raise funds towards the Episcopal consecration expenses to be incurred.
The fundraising was a success as the response turn up to the event was quite good. Tickets for this fundraising diner were sold at $50, $80 and $100 per individual. Entertainment for the dinner dance was by a fellow catholic Jazz Band; Brian Nyahuma and the African pride. Another fundraising activity that was done during this event was the auction.
Special thanks goes to the fundraising team for this initiative and not forgetting CUT Hotel for hosting this event and especially the Lord almighty who made this day a success.
