SVD – Instituti Missiologici Societatis Verbi Divini

This evening a talk on HIV and the church at the SVD institute for missionary work in Siegburg – St. Augustin. A lively debate and the clear message at the end that we still have to go a way until we accept HIV positive people, also priests and religious without any stigma into the church. Also the question of vocations of HIV positive persons has potential for quite a debate amongst  those in charge of the ministries of the church. It is good to know that religious orders are keen to get involved within the church with these questions.

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.
