Desease Brother

It is our sad duty to inform you about the passing away of Bro. Gerard Hermans, who died on December 12, 2021.
The text of the mourning card reads as follows:
" Congregation of the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of Mary
' That goodness and faithfulness
never forsake you.
Put them around your neck.
Write them in your heart. '
Book 'Proverbs'
We have the sad task of informing you that we have had to say goodbye to our dear relative and very devoted fellow brother
Brother Gerard Hermans FIC
Johannes Andreas Gerardus
Gerard saw the light of day in Maastricht on June 17, 1931.
He became our fellow brother on August 15, 1951 by taking his vows in Maastricht.
He left us on December 12, 2021 at the MUMC+ in Maastricht.
Gerard was a very precious person to his family, fellow brothers and friends.
He had the capacity to immediately give people he encountered on his path a good feeling.
He graduated in English language and literature and was a popular teacher in Maastricht. He was a wise member of our General Council and a compassionate Provincial Superior in Malawi. “I myself consider all these windfalls in my life a great gift from the Lord.”
He used his good gifts to be good and to do good to many: students, housemates, fellow brothers worldwide and the visitors of our project 'In the Red Lion' in Maastricht. For many years he directed the Beyart choir and he was the leader of the library of De Beyart.
We say goodbye to Bro. Gerard in private circle during the Eucharistic celebration on Thursday December 16 at 14.30 in the Cellebroeders chapel.
After the celebration we lay him to rest at the cemetery of the brothers FIC near the Anjoulaan in Maastricht.
