Catholic Culture: Gravestone with Latin Inscribed

Elisabeth and Heinrich Vorwerk.

These wonderful souls served as an inspiration for our parish and community.  They were the senior couple of our Latin Mass community at Sts. Joachim and Ann in Aldergrove, B.C.

They survived Nazi Germany, were wed in 1952 and moved to Canada, where they found peace and happiness.

Every Sunday they came faithfully to the Latin Mass and prayed with great devotion with their kids and grandkids.  Our dear pastor, Fr. William Ashley, renewed their wedding vows on the 60th anniversary of their wedding.

Our parish has not been the same since their untimely departure.  May they inspire a new generation of Catholic couples to be strong and inspire others by their intense devotion in the pews.

Their tombstone is a worthy tribute to their greatness: Cor Iesu, Dona Eis Requiem Sempiternam.
