I recently commented on the amazing heritage created by Francis Pfanner from Marrianhill Monastry, and the enormous amount of work he accomplished in a short time, both at Marrianhill and the other 22 Mission stations in the rural areas of KZN.  Pope Francis has recently declared Mother Theresa a Saint, 18 years after her death. Perhaps Francis Pfanner should be considered for Sainthood, given the incredible work he did, over 100 years ago, in South Africa.

I have uploaded some more images of Centocow Mission on the banks of the Umzimkulu river, which includes interior images of the Church. See Gallery – Missions , Churches – Umzimkulu Centocow Trappist Mission for more images.
