Homily preached by Fr. Robert Ng Chi-fan on 22nd December 2003, at Fr. O'Rourke's Requiem Mass.
Homily preached by Fr. Sean Coghlan on 21st December 2003, the day before Fr. O'Rourke's funeral.
The PSA is sad to announce that our beloved Fr. O'Rourke passed away on Wednesday afternoon. He was found in the school chapel at around 5 pm. He was 79 and did enjoy relative good health until the end. We are relieved to be able to report Fr. O'Rourke went with little pain and certainly departed from a place he would have most wanted, namely the House of God.
Memorial Service will be held at 10:30am on Monday 22nd December 2003 at the School Chapel followed by funeral service in the Happy Valley cemetery. Donations, in lieu of flowers may be made in cash or in favour of "Wah Yan College HK" who will put them to good use in line with late Fr. O'Rourke's wishes.
