Death of Bro. Charles Mercieca, C.P.


We pray for Brother Charles Mercieca, C.P., who died today at Nazareth House in Melbourne (Australia).

The funeral for Bro. Charles will be held at St. Brigid’s Church, Marrickville (NSW) on Friday 5th October 2018 at 2.00 p.m.  Following the Mass the burial will take place at the Passionist Section of Rookwood Cemetery at 3.30 p.m.

“Well done, good and faithful servant”

All powerful God, grant to our brother, Charles, one with us in the sacred bonds of the Passion, forgiveness for his sins. His desire on earth was to be like Christ, your Son. May he rejoice in his presence and praise you for ever. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.   (Votive Mass for Deceased Members of the Congregation of the Passion, Passionist Sacramentary)

    Pauline Saaksjarvi (nee Curran) would like to send condolences to Bro. Charles’ family. He was a guiding light during my year in PNG with the Passionist Mission and a delightful friend for all of us.

    R.I.P. Brother Charles. We first met in Vanimo P.N.G. in 1971, when I arrived as an OSB volunteer teacher, my name then being Pauline Curran. You favourably examined my teaching at the Mission school in Kamberatoro. We last met in Templestowe, Vic, when I was Tr in charge of Music at Emmaus College, Vermont Sth. You were a kind and patient man, with a winning personality, who was greatly liked by us, your young Ed staff at Vanimo. I am reminded of you again, as I browse online

    God rest your soul. Fondest memories. From Pauline Saaksjarvi (nee Curran).
