According to a release to us by the Archdiocese of Johannesburg, Archdiocesan News:
"Midnight Mass was celebrated during the all-night vigil at the Cathedral of Christ the King on Saturday/Sunday 10/11 July, the eve of the final match of the World Cup.
More than 300 people were present for Mass which was followed by a healing service at 02:00.
The vigil was opened by Archbishop Buti Tlhagale and began with the Litany of St Therese followed by public veneration. There were talks on the teachings of the church on saints and relics and on the life of and spirituality of St Therese, confessions and music by the Malawian and Charismatic Choirs and singing by the congregation. The vigil ended at 5 in the morning with benediction.
St Therese's relics travel to Tzaneen diocese for a week on 12 July. They will stay overnight at St Francis of Assisi, Yeoville on 19 July en route to Aliwal North, KwaZulu-Natal and finally Cape Town before returning to Johannesburg on 23 August."
