Milestones in Brother Erich Brink’s life
Erich was born on the 6th of November 1940 in Münster, in the diocese of Osnabrück, Germany. After having followed a professional formation as a carpenter, he entered the novitiate of the White Fathers (Missionaries of Africa) in Hörstel on 9th August 1959 as a brother candidate. As was the practice at the time, Brother Erich took his temporary missionary oath two years later, on 6th August 1961, then continued his formation at the Brothers’ scholasticate in Marienthal, Luxembourg, and left for Ghana where he took his perpetual missionary oath on 15th August 1968 in Tamale.
