gogos300 Gogos & Mkhulu's Celebrate Fr Emil's Birthday

About 300 Gogo’s and Mhulu’s, faithful listeners to Radio Veritas, gathered at the Johannesburg Chancery hall to celebrate the belated birthday of Fr Emil Blaser OP, the director of Radio Veritas on Saturday, 21 October 2017.

For some years now this event has been supported and publicised by Tshidi Ramogase, a non-Catholic and faithful listener to the radio station, who has kindly sponsored the event.

Before the five-star luncheon, speeches were accompanied by pre-lunch drinks and snacks. The brass band of the national Apostolic church performed for the guests. It was interesting to note that several players were teenagers and the group performed professionally. This was a wonderful ecumenical gesture.
In welcoming everybody, Tshidi, our generous host, paid a loving tribute to her mother who had died earlier in the year and who was always a welcome guest at this feast. She also thanked all those who would spent so much time in preparing this event. Unfortunately, this was to be the last annual event that she would be able to sponsor.

"Our goal was to receive at least 1000 entries for the competition," said the station’s Executive Director; Fr. Emil Blaser, OP, "but, one day before the deadlines for entries we had only 700. The final push created so much excitement that more than 300 entries were received in one day. We are very grateful to everybody who worked hard to make the competition a success."0

The competition winner was drawn by Fr. Brian Mhlanga, OP, who is the Associate Station Manager of Radio Veritas South Africa, and who will lead the Pilgrimage to Fatima.

Blaser congratulated her on winning two places worth about R60 000 which will take her to Fatima for the centenary celebrations of the Marian apparitions there. Maggie will take her daughter Bonnie with on the pilgrimage, in memory of the winner’s late mother, Bessie who had longed to visit Fatima. Between the two, they had bought five tickets. The pilgrimage competition has been an important fund raiser for Radio Veritas South Africa since 2013. Taking part in the competition gives listeners the chance of winning places on a special
