Father Otto Hopfenmüller - A Salvatorian Pioneer

Fr. Otto HopfenmüllerLorenz Hopfenmüller was born on 29th May 1844 in Weismain, Germany. He became a priest of the Diocese of Bamberg and was ordained on 6th October 1866 at the age of twenty-two. After completing doctoral studies at the University of Würzburg he was appointed to St Martin’s Parish in Bamberg. In 1872 he became editor of the Bamberger Volksblatt, a Catholic newspaper. As a direct result of his involvement in the apostolate of the press he came into conflict with the anti-Catholic authorities and was imprisoned several times. In 1878 he was transferred to Reichmannsdorf and then in 1882 to Seussling. He did much to combat the extreme poverty he encountered in both these towns. He came into contact with Father Bonaventura Lüthen of the Catholic Teaching Society who placed advertisements for Der Missionär in his newspaper.
