Farewell 告老还乡



Two months after the Independence of then Malay, a young French from Missions Etrangeres De Paris (MEP) arrived in Kuala Lumpur to start his life-long missionary works which would span over 57 years.

Fr. Peter Bretaudeau was then a 26 years old priest who was ordained on April 2, 1956 in his home town parish at Le Poire Sur Vie, North of France.

He served under 3 Archbishops, transvered across the Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur for more than 57  years, with the last two and a half years being the residence priest in the Church of the Holy Family, Kajang.

He was officially retired last night in a farewell dinner held at the Holy Family Church Hall, attended by 2 Archbishops, many priests and religious, and about 900 parishioners.

He is a great missionary dedicated his whole life to the church and people.

Thank you Fr. Peter.

当年的马来亚正式独立后的两个月,一位年轻的法国巴黎外方传教修会的神父,抵达了吉隆坡,开展了他一生的传教使命。

伯铎神父(Fr. Peter Bretaudeau)当时只有26岁。他刚在一年半前,于法国北部的家乡晋铎,成为一名外方传教士。

 在吉隆坡总教区超过57年中,伯铎神父经历了三位总主教的管理,到过许多堂区服务,而最后的两年半,则是加影圣家堂的驻堂神父。

昨晚(25-5-2014),在一项堂区主办的感谢与欢送的晚宴中,他正式的退休,告老还乡。他将在12/6/2014 归返到巴黎的总修院,开始他的退休生活。

出席宴会的有两位荣幸总主教、多位神父、修女及约九百名教友。

他是一位伟大的传教士,把一生都奉献给了天主及祂的子民。

谢谢你伯铎神父。

看到神父年轻时的照片,再看他退休的影片,我有要哭的感觉,神父一生为主服务,时间一晃就过去了。名符其实:少小离家老大回,来时是一个青少年,回去时已老态龙总。时间真是过得好快。

岁月不留人,每个人都会到黄昏岁月的时候,但我们必须要提早准备及面对。
