Death Notice - Father Benito Albert De Sousa


Father De Sousa spent his childhood in Hong Kong and his family were regular parishioners of Rosary in Tsimshatsui.

He was ordained to the priesthood in Paris for the Portuguese mission in Macau in 1962, but in his 55 years of ministry worked in Malaysia, Singapore, India and The Philippines. Always a Hong Kong boy at heart, he frequently revisited the home of his youth, attending functions at Rosary and at St. Peter’s in the Mariners’ Club in Tsimshatsui. He was a friend to John Cardinal Tong Hon, the bishop of Hong Kong, as well as many priests of the diocese.

His funeral Mass was scheduled for Saturday, April 8, at St. Peter’s parish in Malacca, Malaysia. A memorial Mass will be celebrated in Hong Kong on Friday, May 5, at 6.30pm in St. Peter’s Chapel at the Mariners’ Club.
