Today I received an email from cousin Mike Wise in Georgia who was nice enough to send me (and members of the Wise clan) a link to a YouTube video which highlights the inside of St. Peters Catholic Church in Heppenheim, Germany.

View the video of the interior of St. Peter’s here.

It is quite a beautiful church – thanks, Mike, for sharing it with us!

Also: Mike’s wife, Denise, will be undergoing surgery on Monday, December 10 – so please remember her in your prayers that her surgery goes well and her recovery is rapid and uneventful.

Here is Mike’s message below:

Greetings Wise Guys and Girls.

I am sending you this video from Heppenheim, Germany and in particular, St. Peter’s church. The Knapps came from Wald Erlenbach, which is about two miles away, and the Andes came from Kirschausen (I think) which is less than one mile away, and the Trares came from that area also.

Peace to all.


View a map of Heppenheim and the surrounding area here to get your bearings.

Mike also shared a beautiful video of candlelight rendition of Silent Night sung in German in a Catholic Church in Germany. It is quite beautiful – and a reminder of what our ancestors experienced in Germany during the holiday season.

View the video here.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season for everyone!
