Vale Joe Borg
A requiem Mass to farewell Confrere Joe Borg to eternal life was held on Friday, 17th February at St Scholastica’s Church in Burwood, Melbourne. He has joined his dear wife, Frances, who preceded him 17 years ago and leaves behind their five daughters and husbands and 16 grandchildren.
Joe had been a member of the Order for nearly 30 years, having made his profession in 1995. He was an active member and regularly took part in the Order’s activities and he will be much missed. He was especially proud of his Maltese heritage and the role that Malta has played in the history of the Order.
The principal celebrant at the Mass was Joe’s brother, Fr Karmel Borg who was assisted by the Chaplain of the Order, Fr Joe Caddy AM, as well as his Parish Priest, together with clergy from the Diocese and from the Missionary Order of St Paul.
Attending the Mass was the Order’s National Hospitaller, Confrere John Murph KMG, the South East Region Hospitaller, Consouer Dr Margaret O’Donnell DMG(In Ob), Joe’s niece, Consouer Mary Galea DMG(In OB) as well as nine other members of the Order.
We remember him in our prayers. RIP Joe.
