Born in Estrela in 1950, Rio Grande do Sul, Father Celson Altenhofen made his first religious profession in the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1970; and was ordained a priest in 1975. After having completed his Doctoral studies in Canon Law, he worked as a professor for many years at the Dehoniana College in Taubaté, where he was also rector of the SCJ Convent, our “Conventinho”. He had just returned from a mission in Rome as procurator of the congregation before the Holy See. He leaves a void because, despite his poor circulatory health, he was in full activity. We ask your prayers for his eternal rest.
