Day 5 – Two morning masses and Home Stays

We celebrated early mass at the Norbertine church in Kommetjie, then followed the priest to his second congregation at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church. The two congregations were very different, but each very welcoming.
That afternoon, we made preparations for individual home stays with community members from the Guglethu township. Beginning with dinner at a host member’s home, we shared food and singing with our host families. Then, in pairs, we headed off to individual homes in some of the poorest neighborhoods in South Africa. Though some of the host families had very little, they shared their homes and their experiences with us, and it was a very moving learning adventure for all of us.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of the last two pieces that we performed at the second mass:
