Father Michael Marmann RIP

Dear Friends it is with great sorry that I inform you that Fr Michael Marmann has died after a short illness. Fr Michael has served in the Schoenstatt Fathers over many decades and held great responsibility for the growth of the community and in the service of the Schoenstatt Family both locally in Germany and internationally. Fr Michael was General superior at the time when St John Paul II called for a New Pentecost and called a meeting of all the renewal Movements in the world . In the words of Pope Francis we would say he was looking for willing missionary disciples. Dear Father Michael rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen
