St Mary’s welcomes new minister
ABERDEEN — At their monthly service last Sunday, members of the Anglican Church of St Mary and All Saints in Aberdeen were pleased to welcome the Revd Dr Mark Marais OSPB, his wife Moyra, and their son Timothy to the church.
After the service, the Marais family joined members of the congregation at a bring-andshare lunch, kindly hosted by church stalwarts John and Jean Watermeyer.
The Aberdeen church is one of the four rural churches which fall within the parish of St James in Graaff-reinet.
The Revd Dr Marais, who moved to Graaffreinet from Plettenberg Bay to take up the position of Rector of St James, will be inducted into his new position on 28th January, at St James’ Church. The congregation of St Mary’s with the Marais family.
