Australian Patrician Affiliate Val Hood passed away on the 19th April after some months of serious illness.

Val’s association with the Brothers goes back several decades to when she was the secretary of the Brothers’ primary school at Liverpool. Val also worked in close association with Br Matthew Mahoney as Province bursar/secretary, and she was secretary for the General Chapters in 1998 (Ireland) and 2004 (Kenya).

Val was an integral part of any major social event which took place in the Australian-PNG Province, from celebrating major birthdays to jubilees to fundraisers to bicentenaries.

Her funeral will be held at 10:30 on Tuesday the 24th April at All Saints Catholic Church, Liverpool.

May Val rest in peace.
