Congratulations to Cardinal-elect Stephen Brislin and the Catholic Church in South Africa!

 On behalf of the Anglican Diocese of Cape Town, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and on my own and my wife, Lungi's behalf, our warmest congratulations go to Archbishop Stephen Brislin on being named a Cardinal-elect of the Catholic Church. 

Pope Francis has announced that he will hold a Consistory at the Vatican on September 30, where 21 new cardinals will be created, including three from Africa. 

I have been privileged to work with Cardinal-elect Brislin, who is my counterpart in Cape Town, and am thrilled at this well-deserved appointment. 

The Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Town and the Catholic Church in South Africa are also to be congratulated on producing yet another Cardinal of the Church. 

The Most Revd Thabo Makgoba
Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town
