In memoriam for Rev. Brother Bosco Wei
In the name of Jesus
Please pray for the repose of the soul of
Rev. Bro. Bosco Wei, F.M.S.
1928 – 2015
We are deeply saddened to announce that Rev. Bro. Bosco Wei (1928-2015), the 4th Principal of St. Francis Xavier’s College from 1975-1994, passed away at 5:30 a.m. today (15 Nov) at the age of 87. May we pray for the repose of his soul.
The wake will be at 6 p.m. and the Requiem Mass at 8 p.m. on 25 November (Wed) at Kowloon Funeral Parlour. The Funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m. on 26 November (Thu) at St. Francis of Assisi Church.
Were you among us when we celebrated the Golden Jubilee of our Alma Mater in 2005? That’s the occasion when we met many familiar faces, re-told our school-day stories, sang with jubilation, chanted our hearty cheers, and made history! We filled the grand hall of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre with record-breaking 185 tables, and also with our brotherhood, spirit, and thankfulness for the Marist Brothers who have touched our souls throughout their lives.
In 10 years’ time, many of us may have stepped onto a different stage in life: from a student to a graduate, from fresh to seasoned, from a son to a husband, father, father-in-law or even grand-father. Time and again we might connect with our buddies and teachers, but it’s not until the coming gala dinner on 6th December 2015 when most of us will come back full circle, touch one another’s heart, and stand strong in unity again to celebrate our mother school’s Diamond Jubilee!
To make this gathering possible and meaningful, besides inviting our Brothers local and overseas, retired teachers and those in service, we also wish to encourage more current students and recent graduates to share the joy and our big family spirit, and make the banquet more affordable for them. The surplus of the event will be used for school development purposes. We sincerely hope that you can offer help at your capacity via the various means listed on the reservation form.
This event will surely bring us sweet memories that will linger for years, and also remind us of our Marist Brothers who have dedicated their lives to a mission of youth education and love. They made themselves the best examples “In the Way of the Marists”. Their humble qualities transcend ages of us. The torch is now laid upon us to inherit their spirit and keep it shining through generations to come!
