Brother Giles SSF – Rest in Peace

Br Giles with Hilfield Community members.

Br Giles SSF died early on August 19th, after a short illness. His years of service in SSF included many in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The brothers in the Solomons have sent this touching tribute on behalf of both Provinces.

“TO GOD BE THE GLORY GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE THROUGH BR. GILES.SSF. IN THE PACIFIC PROVINCE BOTH IN PNG AND SOLOMON ISLANDS IN THE EIGHTIES AND NINETIES. It was a great shock to the brothers in Patteson house on the 19.August at night prayer when it was announced that Br. Giles died. As Pacific island provinces, we will greatly miss him. He cares very much on Pacific Islanders arriving in UK. He was a great brother, his hospitality and tour guide programs for visiting brothers from Pacific provinces is a history to those who been to UK. We greatly miss him and we pray that his soul may rest in Eternal peace and rise in glory.”

Br Giles’s funeral will take place at Hilfield Friary on Thursday August 30th 2018 at 12.15 pm.
