Reflections / Gedanken

20.08.2010 Duesseldorf…

A sunny morning promising a real summer day: I am on the way to Duesseldorf to visit the famous “Koenigsallee”. The GM of the Intercontinental, Mr. Joerg Boeckeler, organised a fundraising campaign for HOPE Cape Town and today, I am invited to join for a press conference midday, followed by the handing over of a cheque and then a luncheon with the co-organisators.

Yesterday evening I was given the “Paulinus” which is the official newspaper of the Diocese of Trier. They report in a major article again about HOPE Cape Town in connection with the “Ithemba” movie of Lutz van Dyk, who is also living and working close to Cape Town. At the same time I get a report back of a fair, the Catholic and other churches have held in Neuwied in lieu of HOPE Cape Town last Sunday.

People are dedicated and working hard to support HOPE Cape Town – and I feel again how blessed HOPE Cape Town is to have so many supporters. But it also means that we have to work very hard as HOPE Cape Town to transfer all this support into real life changers  for those, we are serving in the various communities of the Western Cape.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
