Fr. Bru Cañigueral Colls, CMF

Fr. Bru Cañigueral Colls was from Cassá de la Selva, Spain died on August 2, 2022, at the Hospital Sagrat Cor de Barcelona at the age of 89. He made his first profession on July 16, 1949, his perpetual profession on September 24, 1953, and ordained as priest on September 22, 1956. He worked for the most part of his life in the various missionary platforms in Catalunya. As we give thanks to the Lord for the gift of his person, his life, his Claretian vocation, and service, we ask him to welcome our friend and brother in his father’s house and place him on the table of the banquet of the Kingdom. May he rest in peace.

When a missionary dies, we should celebrate the last rites with devotion, fraternal love, and simplicity. We should remember all our brothers who have gone before us in the service of the Gospel, commending them to the Lord with the prescribed prayers, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist.

We should show the same reverence and respect for our departed parents and for deceased collaborators of the Congregation.
