Fr Aloyse Maurer, member of the St Alphonse Redemptorist community here in Luxembourg, passed away this morning (30 March) in the Zithaklinik. Fr Aloyse, born in Alsace in 1920, had been Provincial of the Redemptorists of the Strasbourg Province and long-time Superior of the Luxembourg community. His funeral is provisionally arranged for Tuesday 07 April — details will be published when confirmed. When the couvent St Alphonse closed in August 2014, Fr Aloyse ‘retired’ to the Franciscan Sisters’ retirement home in Belair; he will be missed by the Redemptorist community, his family and his many friends. RIP.
