Bro. Gérard Aubin went peacefully to the Lord on December 25, 2015 at the Cardinal Tien Hospital, Taipei, at 1:42 p.m.
Bro. Aubin was born in Upton, Québec, Canada, on May 11, 1921. He entered the Society in Montréal, Canada, on Apr. 15, 1941, and made the last vows on Aug. 15, 1951 in Québec.
All priests of the Chinese Province will celebrate one Mass first intention for Bro. Aubin’s eternal rest. Those who are not priests will offer one Mass and Communion and recite one “corona”. The members of St. Robert Bellarmine community will offer two Masses, etc.
Yours in Our Lord,
