ST PAULS NCGOBO
Ngcobo is located along R61 between Mthatha and Queenstown . This parish was established in 1952, its one of the small parishes we have in our diocese. For a small parish it was a proud moment when we topped the Bishop’s fund in 2009 ahead of big parishes like All Saits Cathedral.
A humble man, hardworking and a dedicated priest. He came to this parish as a brother from the seminary then he was ordained a Deacon and later that year he was ordained a priest serving this parish.
