"Saturday the 14th February 2015 (Valentine's day, and Fr. Gift's birthday) was a special day for the Redemptorist Region of Zimbabwe, the Archdiocese of Harare and indeed for the whole Church, as four Redemptorist deacons were ordained to the priesthood by the Archbishop of Harare, his Grace Robert Christopher Ndlovu.

More than 5000 people came from across the country to witness to this occasion as Reverends Gideon Sidinga, Francis Kunaka, Gift Mubayiwa and Kenneth Macharaga were ordained priests.

Soon after the Kiss of Peace at Mass, the Redemptorist Fathers, Brothers and Students came and made an arch at the sanctuary, and, led by Father Provincial, they sang a hymn to Mary (Tiri Venyu, Hosi Mai - literally translated 'we are yours, O Queen Mother).

After the celebrations and lunch, the thick skies that had been holding the rain for the past week opened up and it rainned."
