It is with a sad heart that we announce the death of our beloved Fr. Anthony Farren, S.J.
Fr Farren went to god at 12:30am on 26 December 2015, Irish time. He died very peacefully. The family has requested him be buried in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal.
Fr Farren started his service at WYK in 1958, and served as School Principal from 1960 to 1966 and School Supervisor from 1986 to 1998. We should be consoled that Fr. Farren was ready to return to his eternal home with God. We, his students, his schools, his friends, and his brothers in the Society have now another advocate praying for us in heaven.
The Jesuit community in Hong Kong will be offering a Memorial Mass for Fr. Farren at St. Ignatius Chapel, Wah Yan College, Kowloon (56, Waterloo Road, Kowloon) on 13 January 2016 (Wed) at 7:30pm.
Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project is a project initiated by Class 1971 WYHK in early 2015. The project aims at providing a free English tutorial service to the teenagers in Form 2 to 4 living in Tin Shui Wai. Two phases have been commenced since the project launched, with nearly 200 under-privileged students attended English tutorial classes for a duration of 8 to 10 weeks. The third phase will start in mid-February 2016, which needs you and your family members to participate as volunteers.
For any enquiry, please contact Daniel Mak (1971 WYHK) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Whatsapp/call 6707 9653. Further information about the project, enrollment form, Q&A, and recommendations from Fathers and WY Principals can be found on the project web site.
