The 4th December is the Commemoration Day of Blessed Adolph Kolping. On or around this date, members of the International Kolping Society come together to commemorate his life and work and to honour him with prayers.
The Kolping Society of South Africa celebrated this day on Sunday, 6th December at the parish of Our Lady of Fatima in Bellville.
Members of 13 Kolping Families from Cape Town and surrounding areas came together and shared their experience of being Kolping with each other. Each Kolping Family had a display of their work and NEW Kolping Families could walk around, observe and draw inspiration from the older Families. (see pg 2 on pdf for pictures of Kolping Families)
Further celebrations were held by the Kolping Families in Johannesburg as well as the Kolping Family in Uitenhage.
Fr Christian Frantz, the National Praeses, inspired the Kolping members to be true to the spirit of Kolping by their commitment to prayer and working towards a better society.
