Our Lady of Mercy, Kloof

Kloof was originally used by Durban families to escape the humidity of Durban's summers. Catholic families attended Mass in Pinetown or drove to Mariannhill. Father Theodore Wiest, who was stationed at Malvern from 1935, used to visit Pinetown, Clermont, Kloof and Hillcrest. He also visited the Africans in the outlying areas, making his visits on horseback.

A school for African children, St Leo's, was built in Kloof in the late 1920's and under Father Wiest a piece of land was bought in Krantzview Road and the school was enlarged and moved there and continued to exist until 1970. One teacher was employed.  Read more about our history...
