The Cenacolo Family, especially in Britain, wish to record our appreciation for the life of David Holgate who died on July 6th and was born into eternal life. David was a strong supporter of Cenacolo since his family benefitted personally from the Community. David worked tirelessly in many ways to offer help and assistance to the Community and to those seeking entry to Cenacolo. On many occasions David accompanied young men to one of the Houses of the Community in various parts of Europe. He was associated with the Liverpool Prayer Group and Listening Point. Together with his wife, Mary, he fielded phone enquiries from those seeking information about the Community. Also, for many years he was a trustee of the Cenacolo Charity in Britain. His calm approach to matters and his wise guidance were his hallmark.
We pray for him and his family at this time and are reassured by the words in the Gospel, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have shown you can be faithful in small things, I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master’s happiness.’ (Mt. 25:23)
May he rest in peace.
