In front of the altar are the graves of our benefactors, Graf Christoph Bernhard von Galen (+2002) and his wife, Gräfin Maria-Sophie (+1992). Graf Christoph Bernhard, the nephew of Cardinal Clemens August von Galen, gave Burg Dinklage to the sisters in 1949 after housing them for 2 1/2 years at his estate in Assen. The wolf-crosses on the graves are from the Galen crest.
The graves, like the rest of the floor, were constructed with small stones and laid by the sisters. If you look closely, you will see patterns and figures.
