IN MEMORY OF OUR GERMAN BENEFECTOR, MR JOSEF WINZENHOERLEIN

We received the sad news of the passing of our loving father Mr Josef Winzenhoerlein who has been very supportive of our Children’s Home since early 1990’s. This humble man of God hosted Sr Tholakele Cele FSF, the Director of the Home in his home in Germany for 3 weeks, taking her around different important sports in Germany and introducing her to different important people. Mr Josef loved the poor especially the children of Africa. He lived a simple life and shared the little he had with the poor.

In memory of this loving man, Sacred Heart Children’s Home celebrated his life by celebrating high Mass, praying to God for the repose of his soul. We will all remember him. May his family be comforted by our prayers……AMEN!!!
