STATEMENT OF ETHOS
Culture and Tradition
The Mariannhill Mission Press is rooted in the vision of Abbot Francis Pfanner, founder of the Mariannhill Monastery. At the end of the 19th century he founded The Press, edited and printed
publications. In his view the press had to play a prominent role in the services of the missions. It is therefore due to his zeal and creativity and the dedication of his community for the press that the culture and tradition of the Mariannhill Mission Press is grounded.Read More
In May 2011, PIFSA, The Printing Industry Federation of South Africa produced its centenary publication celebrating 100 years of service to South Africa.
Patrick Lacy, the CEO of PIFSA says in his opening letter:
"It was, however, the missionary printers, inspired by evangelical enthusiasm, unrestrained by government monopoly and generously funded by influential backers, who spread the art and craft of printing throughout South Africa"
