Our brother Juninper O’Brien has died in Harare, Zimbabwe,

on 13 October aged 88.


A Dublin man Brother Juniper went to then Rhodesia in 1964

and contributed greatly to the building of the Church

and Franciscan presence in that country, literally! 

in the building of churches, schools, and homes.

An example to all who knew him,

a blessing to his Franciscan brothers…

Juno may you delight eternally in the joy of the Lord!

Juniper will be buried in Harare,

among the beloved people he made his own.
