Ceres
CeresImagine the scent of thousands and thousands of fruit trees blossoming… You are in Ceres, the valley of fruitfulness of the finest deciduous fruits in South Africa! The valley of Ceres allows you to step back in time: the “Koue Bokkeveld“ and the open plains of the “Tanqua Karoo“ were first inhabited by the San and Khoi, thousands of years ago. Listen to those sounds! Can you hear the joyful laughter of children at “Aviat” and “Bakhita” Crèche? These youngsters from 3 months to 6 years bring you quickly back to the today’s reality. Their parents who earn their living in the fruit juices and natural spring water factories have put their little darlings in our loving and watchful care for the day. Our apostolate is not only bearing fruits closed to children, but we have been asked recently to join a Prison Ministry Group in our Oudtshoorn diocese. The “Good News” falls on fertile ground, prepared by the Spirit, behind those large walls. While we are labouring in “God’s garden”, our Senior Sister, assisted by a young girl, makes our community a cosy place where it feels good to be back to rest and to share after our long day of dedication.

May the Spirit take care of the seeds we sow for 50 years in this place named after the Roman goddess of fertility.
