Dear Bruges alumni,
We would like to invite all those of you who may be interested to gather on Wednesday 15 November at 13.15 for a Thanksgiving Mass for the life of Father Lucien De Wulf at the Chapel of the Resurrection in rue Van Maerlant 22-24 (metro Maelbeek).
Father Lucien de Wulf, who was for many years Chaplain of the College of Europe students, passed away on 1 July 2017 at the age of 92. After spending his youth as a missionary in Congo, Cuba and Peru, Father Lucien de Wolf returned to Bruges as the parish priest of Saint Walburga. He generously devoted his time to support students from the College in their efforts to prepare themselves to work for peace and solidarity in Europe. He also encouraged many of us to rediscover the person of Christ and grow in friendship with Him. During his last years he confronted sickness with patience and serenity. He joyfully celebrated his 70 years of priesthood on 31 May 2017. His words, deeds and the fond memory of his joyful presence call on us to put our talents to the service of the less privileged.
Please bring a sandwich and stay for a quick lunch and chat with other alumni at the Chapel after the Mass. Comme à Saint Walburga, le Porto vous attend!
