Visit to African school in Tembissa
On Wednesday morning, 30 October 2012, Archimandrite Panteleimon (Jovanovic) - the principal of the church of Saint Thomas the Apostle in Johannesburg, visited a primary school - St. Athanasius Christian School in Tembissa, in an African suburb of Johannesburg. Cheerful pupils along with their Orthodox priest Fr Frumentius (Taubata) and Mr. Anastasia Berth (Moswane) - the school master, welcomed the father with the icons of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Mother of God. During this visit, Fr Panteleimon noticed newly built classrooms, a new reception hall, a faculty lounge. It was also wonderful to see more pupils in the school than before.
