WE ARE GRIEVING OVER A VERY GREAT LOSS
On 3rd November 2015 our much-loved Father Jeremias will transfer to Rome, for atleast 6 years, maybe more. He will be the Assistant to the. Father General of his community.
No one can ever really step adequately into the shoes of a truly great human being, and this is what Father Jeremias is for us. We have had the privilege of having had Father Jeremias work with us for refugees for around 6 years. Not only is he a holy priest, but a man of great integrity with an amazing nearness to life and so humble and unassuming. Apart from all his commitments to his duty as Provincial, he still managed to find time to do so much for our Mercy work. He even knew all our refugees by name. We shall miss our regular Masses at Mercy House with Father Jeremias so much, as also the Recollection Days he prepared for our co-workers with great devotion.
Above all, Father Jeremias, it is you we will miss and thank you with all our hearts for what you have done for us. We will not forget you and of course keep you in our prayers always. May God bless you in your privileged new task: our loss but Rome’s gain. Keep us in your heart
