Working together to improve the quality of life for each Member.

What we do

A Kolping Family is a branch of the Kolping Society of South Africa and

consists of a group of 10 or more Members.



Enable it’s members to be true Christians in the world in their families, in their work and in their interactions with society and the community.


Serve the needs of it’s members and the surrounding communities as a non-political association.


Be true to the spirit of self-reliance. To help people to use their own strengths and find solutions to their situations in life.


To respond to the signs of the times through prayer and action.


To identify a problem or a need in society and to take action to address the problem.


To offer help to the Kolping members, the parishioners and broader community in whichever way they can.
