Bisdom OudtshoornSEDE OUDTHOORNENSIS VACANTE

With the resignation of Bishop de Gouveia from the pastoral care of the Diocese, the Diocese of Oudtshoorn is without a resident Bishop until a newly elected Bishop is appointed.

Until such time, Fr. John Atkinson, the former Vicar-General of the Diocese, will be ADMINISTERING the Diocese with limited faculities to do so. A new Bishop, when appointed, can come from anywhere in the SACBC area, yes, even from among the local clergy but it is not a given that any of the local clergy will be appointed as the shepherd of the flock of the Diocese of Oudtshoorn.
