Brother Lazare deceased

Our Community in Rimont is in mourning once more with the passing of Our brother Lazare who died in hospital at 4:35pm, Wednesday 14 April.

Brother Lazare was taken urgently to hospital on Good Friday in Chalon-sur-Saône after consulting his cardiologist. It turned out he had Covid-19, made worse by his heart problems. He was put on life-support, Easter Wednesday 8 April, and later, into an artificial coma. With his condition critical and with no signs of improvement, the medical team took the decision to no longer keep him alive by artificial means. His family was also consulted and gave their consent. Brother Jovien-Andréa, Brother Gonzague and Brother Joseph-Marie were able to accompany him in his last moments with prayers for the dying. He received the Last Rites on Saturday.

The funeral Mass will be held here in Rimont cemetery next Tuesday 20 April, 2:30 p.m.

Brother Lazare entered the Community in 1988. He was first assigned to the Corbara priory where he resided between 1991 and 1998. His journey included short stints in Laus, La Chaise-Dieu and Cognac, before arriving at Rimont in the Spring of 2000, almost 21 years ago. Despite his heart surgery from around this time, Brother Lazare continued to make the most of his life. He was part of the postal team as ‘Vaguemestre’ and carried out various other tasks, heath permitting.

By providence, his ‘Last Supper’ with the community was on Maundy Thursday. May Our Lord be with him on his journey from this world to the next and Our Heavenly Father.
