Bishop Ivor Adams conducted a divine service on Sunday 29 October 2017 at Villiersdorp
where he placed Priest Dawid Aries into a well-deserved retirement. Priest Aries turned 65 at the beginning of October. It was a great joy to all members of Villiersdorp, including the mission congregations Highnoon, Theewaterskloof and Waterval who were invited to this blessed occasion. The Bishop thanked the Priest for serving in the ministry for all these years. The District Rector, District Elder J Louw and the new Rector, Community Evangelist M Louw, including all the rectors and rector helpers with their wives attended this divine occasion.
The Bishop Adams used the Bible word out of 2 Kings 5:14. It was indeed a very beautiful and blessed encounter in God’s house.
