Memorial service for Fra Ġwann

 


Drachma would like to invite you for a memorial service to commemorate and celebrate the life of a dear person who was very close to Drachma and our community: Fra Ġwann.

Fra Ġwann Xerri OP was one of the co-founders of Drachma Parents Group in 2008. Though he spent a large part of his life as a Dominican missionary in Brazil, he was in contact with members of Drachma and always visited the group whenever he came to Malta.

In this memorial we will celebrate his life and mission and his special connection to Drachma. We would especially like to invite to attend to share your own personal memories and anecdotes about his life and mission.

The meeting will be held online. To join click here

IN MEMORIAM

 


Frei Ġwann Xerri O.P.

1947-2021


B'sobgħa kbira nħabbru l-mewt ta' Fra Ġwann Xerri, missjunarju Malti fil-Brażil, li kien ħabib kbir ta' Drachma u ko-fundatur ta' Drachma Parents Group. 

Huwa kien jaf lil Drachma Parents Group titwieled, u kellu sehem qawwi ħafna fiha.  Kien dejjem jiggwidana bil-kliem tiegħu, jagħmlina kuraġġ u jgħinna nimxu l-quddiem b'ħafna mħabba u sinċerita'.  

Nsellmulu minn hawn.  J'Alla l-Mulej jilqgħu fi ħdanu u jagħtih il-glorja tal-ġenna.

Strieħ fis-sliem għażiż Fra Joao.  ❤

With great sorrow, we announce the passing away of Fra Ġwann Xerri, a Maltese missionary in Brazil, who was a very close friend of Drachma  and co-founder of Drachma Parents Group.

He was one of the founding members of Drachma Parents Group and played a very important role. He guided us with his very wise words, with his insights, encouraging us forth in the path of love.

We remember him with love. May the Lord God grant him eternal peace.

Rest in peace, dearest Fra Joao. ❤
