Welcome to our website!

Dear People of God

Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Witbank. I pray and hope this site will bring us all nearer to Jesus and to each other.

‘Venio ministrare’ means ‘I come to serve’.

Let us follow the example of Jesus and serve God and one another.

We follow also the example of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus and of St. Peter Claver, the two patron saints of the Diocese of Witbank , who made service to God and to their brothers and sisters their life time commitment.
