Appointed to Council in 2014

Venerable Sepadi Oupaki Moruthane was appointed to Council by the Bishop of Johannesburg to represent the bishop on Council and be the link between the Visitor and College Council.  

Father Oupaki is currently the rector of the Church of the Resurrection in Meadowlands, Soweto. He is also one of the archdeacons appointed by the bishop to share with him the oversight of the diocese. He is the archdeacon of the western side of Soweto and sits on the bishop's advisory body that is known as the Chapter. His first love is parish ministry, feeding the flock and being there with them in times of joy and sorrow.

When he is not busy with the pastoral responsibility, he is preoccupied with his second passion, which is in the education field. Father Oupaki's current research project is investigating the benefits to parishes and christians in general of the intra-disciplinary collaboration of Pastoral Theology with other disciplines,  and the inter-disciplinary collaboration of theology with other sciences.
