Mike – RIP

We mourn Mike who passed away on 11 September surrounded by  all his loving family.

Mike was one of our early volunteers at Emmaüs and contributed in different ways to the development of our little project. He used to pass his days sitting and painting at the front gate which always encouraged passing pilgrims to stop and talk.

Professionally he had been a doctor – university lecturer and then  general practitioner – with a particular interest in holistic medicine, seeing the patient as a whole – as a person . Throughout his varied and adventurous life he had consistently tried to discern God’s will for him and to act accordingly.

We are confident he now rests in God’s loving care and we keep his wife, Jenny, and their large family in our thoughts and prayers.
