Mourning the death of Sr. Renate Werner OP

[Translate to English:]

Sr. Renate Werner OP

Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire.
(St Catherine of Siena)

Sr. Renate was born on January 6, 1936 in Bobingen, Diocese of Augsburg. In August 1953 she entered the convent in Neustadt with a group of young women, including Sisters Ruth, Dietharde, Ingrid, Priscilla and Lidwina. In April 1955 she made her first profession.

As a young sister she worked in Freckenhorst and on the Volkersberg before she went to South Africa in June 1965. There she lived and worked and there God in His great love and mercy has now called her to new life where she will surely intercede for us and for all those whom she loved.

May she now rest in peace.
