Priests
What a beautiful picture from Sandy McCann. I didn’t know what kazi meant ~ basically they are sacristans in the U.S. They help set up Holy Communion each week and put out books, clean the chapel and grounds. Sandy had taken new robes and stoles donated by an altar guild in New York and they wanted their picture taken. Here there is no rule about church seasonal colors ~ they wear what they have and the more color the better, says Sandy. She has come to love it as have I. Altar guilds in the U.S would have massive strokes if we messed with the colors. The young man on the right is Samwell Matonya, no kin to Moses, but in one of my classes last year. He is a sweetheart and helped me so much last summer. One is a Muslim convert. Jessie says she wants her tombstone to read: “She wasn’t vanilla.” The same can be said of our African brothers and sisters. We just sent two green stoles to Sandy, so we will see them someday adding to the rainbow of colors. Enjoy their joy!
