pensées of a Catholic priest

20.12.2009 Winding down…

4th Sunday of Advent – this morning service at the  Milnerton church and after that a nice stroll with friends along the promenade of SeaPoint – perfect weather and a great brunch added to a perfect Sunday morning. Cape Town starts to get into the holiday mood – one can sense it seeing more people from the rest of the country, the streets are clearly occupied by people searching for Table Mountain when the robot is green…. 🙂

HOPE Cape Town is winding down it’s business for the summer holidays – soon all are gone except our doctor keeping our office open between all the festivities. It is the time of the year when Cape Town feels like a long never-ending holiday – the beaches are full of people, and the sun is puting a smile on almost everybody’s faces.

The kids on the Ithemba ward had a visit from Andre and friends from the Milnerton parish.. – Christmas surprise with a Santa Claus coming to the ward. It is so nice to see the on Facebook the pics of the happy kids – well done, you folks from Milnerton – you made a difference in the lives kids and parents… thank you so much. For me it is always amazing to see how people engage and help and sacrifice time and other resources to make the more needy ones happy. Again: Mille Gracie… 🙂

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
