Farewell to Sr. M. Christine Köberlein

God, the Lord over life and death has blessed our Sister M. Christine Köberlein into his kingdom of love and peace.

Sr. Christine died on 17.04.2021 in Vierzehnheiligen.

She reached the age of 75, of which she spent 51 years in the Congregation. With great dedication, a high sense of duty and love for all that was created, she turned to life, tasks and especially to people. During her 12-year term as  Superior General (2000 - 2012), she shaped and accompanied essential developments of the Congregation. She was appreciated and loved by the sisters and outsiders and had the trust of the sisters. We remain gratefully attached to her in love and prayer.

Requiem and funeral will be held under observation of the current pandemic containment regulations.
