Br. Alban, F.M.S., R.I.P.

Of your charity pray for the repose of the soul of

Br Alban Michael, F.M.S. (1917-2008)

who passed away aged 91 on the evening of the First Sunday of Lent, 10 February, fortified by the rites of our Holy Mother the Church, faithful to his vocation, and clothed in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

He was born Lawrence William McMullen at Peria, in the North Island of New Zealand, on 10 January, 1917. He made his first vows as a religious in the Little Brothers of Mary, or Marist Brothers, at Timaru in the South Island on 12 September, 1938, and devoted most of his religious life to Christian education in Fiji and New Zealand. From 1981 he was the faithful companion of the late Fr Augustine Cummins, C.SS.R., first in Australia, and, finally, accompanying him to Orkney, Scotland in 2003.

Requiescat in pace.
