Marists in Baucau

10/06/2013: East Timor

On Saturday, 1st June, some three hundred members of the Marist family, friends and representatives of organizations supported by the Marists in Timor-Leste, gathered to honour and celebrate St Marcellin Champagnat and Br John Horgan’s Golden Jubilee as a Marist Brother. Father Justiniano SDB presided at the Eucharist celebrated in the Cathedral of Saint Anthony in Baucau.

Following the Eucharist guests moved to the parish hall for a program of speeches, traditional and modern dances, and songs that acknowledged and honoured the gratitude the Brothers and people of Baucau have for the way in which John has lived and continues to live so generously and positively his life as a Marist. One highlight of the celebration was John being attired in the traditional dress and regalia of an East Timorese ruler (Liurai); a significant symbolic expression by the people of the deep esteem and love in which John is held in Baucau. A feast day that will long be remembered!
