On Sunday 4 December 2016,  the retired Priest May and his wife received their Golden (50th) wedding anniversary blessing out of the hand of the Apostle M Arendse in Bonteheuwel Central Congregation. The couple was described as a beautiful example in the congregation, especially to the youth.
During the divine service, 46 children and adults also received the sacrament of the Holy Sealing and two priests - Priest Davids and Priest Adams - were placed into retirement.
