image005Pilgrims belonging to the Magis Zimbabwe Network on Sunday 29 May 2016 graced the Sacred Heart Parish in Banket to celebrate Corpus Christi Day with the youth.

The warm visit precedes the July 14-24 Magis 2016 Experience in which the group will partake in Poland under the theme, “TO GIVE AND NOT COUNT THE COST,” prior to their participation in the majestic World Youth Day in Krakow. 42 young people, including 4 pilgrims from Sacred Heart parish in the rural Banket will take part in this faith sharing pilgrimage.

Following the Solemnity of the Corpus Christi celebrations, with the local parishioners, Magis pilgrims gathered with the Catholic Youth Association in an experience sharing exercise conducted in a Magis Circle style.

Miss Haleema Mekani, a Magis pilgrim said the experiences were fulfilling as they brought together the youths making them one body as was the teaching of Corpus Christi.

Kudakwashe Chamazo from Sacred Heart parish also taking part in the Magis 2016 added that the spirit of oneness brought about by this gathering should remain amongst the youths in the parish.

The Magis group continues to pray for the success of the Magis 2016 and WYD Krakow experiences for it is an opportunity for young people to embrace the richness of being a Catholic, the diversity in cultures among other rich opportunities this pilgrimage presents.
