Archbishop Alik Banda of the Archdiocese of Lusaka in Zambia, together with three guests, all priests, namely Fr. Solomon Tembo, Fr. Kabungo and Fr. Bboloko paid a casual visit to the Pallottine Fathers´ community, at Green House, Westwood, on 28 May 2021. Together with the community of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters they had a family gathering of fraternal sharing and thereafter lunch in the Fathers´ community.

Before leaving, the Archbishop and the priests also gave a surprise visit to the Sisters and had coffee with them. Together they had a time to chat and share their joys and plans for the future. The visit brought a lot of joys and blessings, especially of the Bishop, who has a loving heart of a father who is concerned about all. We are grateful for his short visit to the Pallottine family.

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
