Saint Brother Solomon

The canonisation of De La Salle Brother Solomon Leclercq has brought great joy to the whole Lasallian Family in Hong Kong. 

Each La Salle school made good use of a resource package produced by the brothers to put the story of the saint across and stress the values he upheld during his lifetime.

The main celebration was a Thanksgiving Mass held on October 22 in the chapel at St. Joseph’s College in Central. 

Bishop Joseph Ha Chi-shing kindly officiated at the Mass along with Father Bruno Lepeu and Father Carlos Cheung Sam-yui.

The day was particularly blessed by the presence of Brother Alphonsus Breen, still bright and cheerful at the age of 83. May the brother who is now officially a saint of the Catholic Church bless us all with peace.

Brother Solomon becomes the seventh member of the De la Salle congregation to be canonised, with the first being its founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle.
