Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory, Br Colin Wilfrid

Our Brother Colin Wilfred died peacefully on Tuesday, 2nd August, at the Friary in Canterbury. He had been suffering for some years from fibrosis of the lungs. Colin joined SSF in 1969, was professed in vows in 1973, and served in a number of our Friaries both here in the European Province, and also in the Australia/New Zealand Province where he was Minister from 1997 to 2002. From 1985 until 1996 he was deeply involved in working for and with those affected by the HIV/AIDS virus. He had a keen interest in liturgy and has played an important role in producing the Daily Office SSF. He will be greatly missed by his brothers in SSF and by many friends around the world.
His funeral and requiem Mass took place in St Peter’s, Canterbury on the feast of St Clare, 11th August attended by a large congregation. Here is the text of the sermon preached by Br Samuel, the Minister of the European Province.
