Celebration of Life: Most Rev. Remi De Roo, Bishop Emeritus of Victoria
June 25, 2022
Please join us to honour the life of the Most Reverend Bishop Remi De Roo. The Celebration of Life service will be held in the Bethlehem Chapel from 2:00 – 3:30 PM with tea, coffee and cookies to follow. Space will be limited to 100 people. To help with planning please RSVP.
Remi was born in 1924, became a priest and was ordained in 1950. In 1962 he became the youngest Catholic Bishop in the World. At the time of his passing, he was the last surviving Bishop that had participated in the Vatican II.
Here at Bethlehem Centre, Bishop Remi was the initial inspiration in 1987 for the creation of the now, Bethlehem Centre. He had been an active champion of our Society with his participation, patronage, and guidance over the years.
We are extremely grateful for the service that Remi gave to the Centre, and his legacy lives on with us.
