REUNION in ROME
1999



In his Christmas 1999 Newsletter, Eugene wrote : "The Padri Bianchi gave us an overwhelming welcome on our first Monday in the Eternal City with a tour of the Generalate that took us up in brilliant sunshine to the roof, followed by a visit to the archive where Fr Ivan Page read to us from Mgr Livinhac's actual diary about the about the Martyrs of Uganda.

Some of us went back there for evening Mass on the feast of Saints Simon and Jude, celebrated by Pierre Féderlé WF, whom I hadn't seen since Totteridge 1961.

Fr Page and Fr John O'Donoghue then came out with us for our last supper to the Ostelleria dei Pontifici near St Peter's and the Casa tra Noi where we stayed.
