Bishop Holiday’s welcome message
As the Bishop of the Diocese of Kroonstad in South Africa, I welcome you to this website.
It is my hope that I will inform you and provide you with the information you seek about this local Catholic Church in the Free State Province of South Africa
The Diocesan Pastoral Plan is “Celebrating our Faith in Marriage and Family Life”.
The information on this website is an overview of our pastoral outreach as the Catholic Church in serving God’s people so that they may encounter the God of love.
Right Reverend Bishop Peter Holiday
Until 1924 this territory formed part of the Kimberley Vicariate. By a decree dated 26 November 1923, the Sacred Congregation de Propaganda Fide erected the northern half of the Orange Free State into a Prefecture and entrusted its care to the German Province of the Holy Ghost Fathers.
