Trappist Missions

I have recently added to the images of the more than 20 Trappist Missions in KZN, and it never fails to amaze me how much was achieved by the monks and nuns of Marrianhill in so short a time.
I believe that the “collection”of missions is a national asset and should receive more attention by Tourism authorities and Department of culture. It would in a very positive way assist the communities and schools associated with the Missions. The existing structures represent an investment that gives ready leverage to any initiatives.
Below are images of St Michaels (Njane), Himmelberg and Kevelaer Missions, in the area.

Under Gallery, go to the drop down and see Missions, Churches and Monastries for more images.
