Dedicated pastor goes to eternal reward

HONG KONG (SE): Father Gabriel Lajeune of the Society of Foreign Missions of Paris (MEP) passed away at St. Mary’s Home in Aberdeen on November 2 at the age of 92. He will be remembered as a pastor fully dedicated to his flock. 
 
In order to help people get to know each other, and pray and cooperate, he reorganised the parishes where he served to stimulate the apostolic spirit. He was the superior of the MEP in Hong Kong from 1980 to 1993. He welcomed seminarians and young priests in his parishes, so that they in turn, could become pastors.
