DECEMBER Necrology

29 Nov 2019

In response to numerous inquiries, this is the policy for the Salesian necrology:  it records the PLACE where a confrere died, not the house to which he belonged. What is published in Salesian News / our website in many cases corrects errors in the Italian necrology (2002) and at times even in the North American Directory, based (for instance) on an obituary letter.
