Welcome to the Diocese of Natal... Loving Communities...
Recent floods in
KwaZulu-Natal
On behalf of the Angican Diocese of Natal, I would like to express my deep sadness at the suffering that has been caused in KwaZulu-Natal by the recent heavy rain and devastating flooding. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of those who have lost their lives, and our prayers for all who have been injured or rendered homeless. We commend the emergency workers and first responders who have worked tirelessly to give aid. We call upon all our Churches to help where possible to accommodate the displaced, to provide food and clothing and other necessities, and generally to show the love of Christ to the people who are suffering at this time.

Heartiest congratulations to the Revd Sr Dr Thandi Ntuli (CJC)! On 09 April she was awarded a PhD in Theology at a graduation ceremony held in the Pietermaritzburg Royal Show grounds in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Her thesis was titled: Ubuntombi – a Zulu religio-cultural heritage and identity: A path to adulthood and sex education practices. She received a calling into priesthood in the early 2000s, and had to resign from her former professional career as a School Proncipal to pursue Theology studies at the Collage of Transfiguration. After her three-year Diploma in Theology, she was ordained as a Priest in the Parish of Holy Trinity, Phoenix. She enrolled for an Honour’s degree in Theology at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN) in 2012, and then proceeded into a Master’s degree in 2013. Having passed both her Honour’s and Master’s degrees Cum Laude – she was offered an opportunity to study Master's at Oslo University in Norway which she passed with distinction. She was already a PhD candidate at UKZN, upon her return to South Africa towards the end of 2016, she continued with her PhD and finally completed her thesis in 2018. She is currently serving as a self-supporting Priest in the Cathedral of the Holy Nativity in Pietermaritzburg. She continues to be a member of CJC, as the Assistant Mother Superior. She is also a part-time lecturer at the Lutheran Church Seminary.
