Whilst the journey towards Sainthood is a lengthy one that may take many years to be completed, we are excited to report that the next step towards the Canonisation of Domitilla and Danny Hyams took place at Christ the King Cathedral in Johannesburg on 10 April.
His Grace, Archbishop Buti Tlhagale OMI, presided over Holy Mass, followed by the Opening Session for the inquiry for the Cause for Sainthood, during which officials of the Cause took the Oath to learn the truth concerning the matter. This is an essential step required by the law governing the process of Causes, paving the way for the officials to conduct interviews with numerous different witnesses, and present their findings to the Archbishop. He will then make a formal submission to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints for their consideration.
Once the Diocesan phase is completed, it will be followed by the Roman phase. This means the process continues in Rome with Beatification and Canonisation coming later if evidence gathered passes the test.
