In Memoriam

"One of the most compassionate human beings I have had the privilege to know passed away today. He just turned 74 last January 11. Fr. Carl was more than a mentor to us, his students. He was a very dear friend. I believe in Immanuel because of people like him." I wrote these words last January 31, 2008, the day Fr. Carlos Abesamis, SJ, died. Almost a year has passed since then.

On Sunday, February 1, 2009, to celebrate his life and ministry on the occasion of his death anniversary, Willie and Marilen Abesamis, his younger siblings, will host a thanksgiving fellowship to launch the book "Fr. Abe--A Scrapbook." It will be held at the Good Shepherd Convent near Ateneo, 4 p.m.
