New Pastoral Model Needed for Migrant Welcome in South Africa

A new “pastoral model” is needed in South Africa to welcome migrants into the life of the local community and parish, Bishop Robert Mogapi Mphiwe told ACI Africa. He said the local Church can act as a first point of contact for Catholic migrants, helping them to integrate and find a spiritual home.
