Passing of Mr. Henry Yuen

Our gentle friend and kindest brother joined Christ in victory. After his long battle with cancer, he entered God’s throne room in peace.

Henry graduated from our alma mater in 1996 after his Hong Kong A-Level Examination that year. He went on to the University of Hong Kong to study finance before returning to teach at WYK until 2021.

We have lost an exemplary alumnus and we send our every good wish to him in Heaven and his family and friends on earth.

Passing of Rev. Fr. Seán Coghlan, S. J. 谷紀賢神父

Our beloved Jesuit and teacher passed on to the Lord on September 2, 2021, at St. Paul Hospital, Hong Kong, at 3:17 a.m.
Born in Limerick, Ireland, Fr. Coghlan became a Jesuit in 1951 and was ordained in 1965 before professing his final vows at Wah Yan College, Kowloon in 1970. He was the Principal of Wah Yan College Hong Kong from 1988 to 1996 and then became the longest serving Warden of Ricci Hall at the University of Hong Kong.

At Wah Yan College, Kowloon, Fr. Coghlan was Rector and Student Counsellor in the 1970s before devoting his time teaching our alumni in the 1980s. An unimposing figure, his cheerfulness and care for Wahyanites always made us feel warm and at home. He touched our hearts with his kindness and showed us how to be a man for and with others. He was our teacher, our guide, our counsellor and our example.

While saddened by his passing, we are content with the faith that he went on to greener pastures and the gratitude for his warmth and care.
