Desease Bro. Cunibert (Piet) van Bree.

Dear Brothers,


It is our sad duty to inform you about the passing away of Bro. Cunibert (Piet) van Bree on 7 November 2016.

The text of the mourning card reads as follows:


"   Congregation of the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of Mary


          ' For humble people He is accessible' (song by Oosterhuis on the basis of Psalm 72)


After a lifetime of service to fellow people and his Lord we have to say goodbye to our loyal family member and fellow brother


Brother Cunibert van Bree FIC

Petrus Franciscus Maria


He was born on 27 May 1931 in Geldrop. On 15 August 1952 he committed himself to the FIC Congregation by making his vows. He passed away on 7 November 2016 in the Residential Care Center De Beyart in Maastricht.


After he obtained his teacher's and headmaster's certificate he taught at Brother schools in many places in The Netherlands. Brother Cunibert had his heart pledged to the youth. Besides teaching, he devoted himself to leisure activities of disadvantaged young people. He conducted several walking clubs and until a few years ago he has done a lot of work for the youth department of football club Rapid. From 1981 he lived with fellow brothers in the Maastricht district Wittevrouwenveld, where he felt at home and sympathized with the residents. Because of his weakened health, he moved in 2014 to the Residential Care Center De Beyart.


We say goodbye to brother Cunibert in the Eucharistic celebration to be held on Friday 11 November at 13:30 in the chapel of De Beyart. Around 15:00 he will be buried at our cemetery near the Anjoulaan in Maastricht.





On behalf of the FIC Congregation and the community "Xaverius":

Brother Kees Gordijn, Provincial Superior

Brusselsestraat 38, 6211 PG Maastricht


On behalf of the family van Bree:

Plataanhof 25, 5664 VA  Geldrop.     "
