passed away at Inkamana Abbey, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa.

Our Brother Hartmann Brattinger died peacefully on March 18th at 10H30 at Inkamana. He was born on November 6, 1905 at Gnotzheim, Diocese of Eichstätt, and made his monastic profession at the Archabbey St Ottilien on February 5, 1925. On March 29, 1931 he received the mission cross for Zululand. He spent 53 years at Gonzaga, a remote mission station, where his skills as farmer and Jack-of-all-trades were badly needed. In 1990, he returned to Inkamana and remained there until his death.
