On a cold, rainy evening in the Christian Brothers Centre in Stellenbosch, the Cape Town Tertianship was officially opened. Fr. Rowan presided at an evening Mass, which was attended by the seven tertians who had arrived, the tertian instructor and his assistant, the Cape Town local Jesuit community and Br. Terry Dowling, the director of the Centre. Apart from welcoming the pioneer tertians to the beginning of this new tertianship, Fr. Rowan pointed out that they are not the first tertians in South Africa.
