Chapel on the Hill, Hogsback

This view caught my eye as I entered into this small church of St Patrick’s on the Hill in Hogsback.   In the garden is a stone arch with a brass bell that stands as a memorial for the Rev Dr Bride Dixon, first woman priest in South Africa, and doctor on the mountain for many years.

Duomo, Milan, Italy

Duomo, Milan, Italy

Daar is alreeds in 1386 met bouwerk aan die Katolieke Duomo met sy 135 toringtjies begin en het oor etlike jare gestrek.  Ek staan verstom oor al die detail wat die vaardige vakmanne aangebring het en wonder altyd hoeveel tyd hulle bestee het om so ‘n werk uit Candoglia marmer en steen te skep.

Anglican Cathedral where the services are held in Swahili except for each first Sunday of the month when it is conducted in English

The cathedral is located on the spot of the past slave market, which was shut down in 1873. It is positioned on the eastern side of Stone Town and is the oldest Christian Church in East Africa. This grand cathedral was built in 1877 by the Universities Mission in Central Africa (UMCA) after the slave trade was eradicated.   Die kruis in die kerk is gemaak van die boom waaronder Livingstone oorspronklike begrawe is in Zambië.
