Brother Michael's Stories
Shared by Vera Keech on December 31, 2019
On my first year travelling by boat and train as a Group Leader of Group 47 I had a very sick girl in the group, and on learning that Brother Michael was travelling on the same train it gave me great confidence,and needing help in the middle of the night he made no fuss about getting out of his bunk to come along to our group and help us, I found Brother Michael a very humble man always ready to help and chat to the young pilgrims on the week in Lourdes when he could be there with us.  May he rest in peace



Whitsun Pilgrimages

Shared by Tony Jarvis Jarvis on December 29, 2019
There was a short period of years when 5-6 HCPT Groups held an HCPT Pilgrimage Week over The Whitsun period instead of Easter. Dr Michael went with a Group to care for a child and not as the pre-eminent  doctor. I approached him and asked what he wanted me to do. He said ' you take the lead role as the pilgrimage doctor along with Dr Mike Everett, my chosen place is to be a volunteer helper only'. I felt touched and honoured, I saw first hand Dr Michael's profound humility.

An inspiration to  many people to count children, adult ,volunteers, families, friends of all thoses that have travelled over the years and all the people who continue to supported  HCPT. The last time I meet Brother Michael was in  September 2019 Brother Michael joined the Welsh region to share our Cariad theme  thank you Mass at Nazareth House. It was a real privilege to be there with him. We are truely grateful for the work he did. 
My thoughts prayers are with Brother Michael's family, friends and everyone he have has touch through all his good works. There will be an extra bright light in the sky tonight looking down on us all Now and Always What a legacy he leaves 
here on earth.RIP
