Vredendal
VredendalWhy not enjoy a moment of peace in this valley situated at the feet of the “Matzikama” mountain, on the bank of the Olifant River? From 1935, its waters transformed our  mission station into a “garden of Eden”  where “mill and honey” streamed. Our Sisters shared its richness with the other missions of our South African region. Not only our “Pioneers” dedicated themselves to agriculture, but also to the spiritual and human growth of the children attending the Primary school located on the mission’s premises. Circumstances made the school move to a more central place in Vredendal and the Spirit opened other ways to us to serve the Church by our apostolate. We do not mind travelling as far as Van Ryhnsdorp, Klawer and Lutzville to sustain and to animate the different catholic communities by our various ministries. We move souls closer to Christ not only in the far off outstations, but our loving service starts at home where we open our doors wide to welcome our Sisters on their long trips from one mission to the other. Used to collaborate closely with our Oblate Fathers, we fraternally take care of our neighbour, a retired French Oblate Priest who served South Africa for many years. If you want to experience the Salesian spirit of hospitality in Vredendal yourself, we can accommodate you with a few simple guest rooms. May the Lord’s blessings make our apostolate as fruitful as the Olifant River abundantly irrigates the innumerous fruit orchards in this region!
