  1. Thank you for these informative articles on the history of the salesians in South Africa.
    I feel honored to have been a parishioner at Lansdowne in the 1980’s. I was also privileged to have visited at Daleside. I fondly remember the musically talented Fr Grace SDB who often accompanied the rosebank convent choir in eistedfords and other recitals.
