Our brother, Fr Seraphin Kennedy, a friar of the Cork community, died on the 11 February. He was 82 years of age. A native of Cork city he had served as a missionary in South Africa before returning to Ireland in 1970s.

Seraphin had a deep devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes and was linked for many years with the National Franciscan Pilgrimage to Lourdes, so it was fitting that he went home to God on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
