The Salesian Volunteers Program is mourning the loss of Fr. Paul, a Salesian of Don Bosco who recently passed away. Fr. Paul was a true Salesian Missionary at heart and played a vital role in the success of the Salesian Volunteers Program.
Fr. Paul was a beacon of hope for the poorest and most needy in society, and his unwavering commitment to empathy and service touched the lives of many. He went above and beyond to support the Salesian Volunteers Program by providing the St Joseph Salesian Retreat House as a base for their activities and tirelessly fundraising to secure donations for the homeless community on Skid Row.
Fr. Paul was a true inspiration to all who knew him. His loving and courageous spirit encouraged everyone to think outside the box and make a positive difference in the world. His selfless dedication to serving others was a testimony to his faith and his unwavering commitment to the Salesian mission.
The Salesian Volunteers Program is eternally grateful to Fr. Paul for his unwavering support and invaluable contributions to their work. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy of love and service will continue to inspire generations of volunteers to come.
Fr. Paul’s passing is a poignant reminder of the importance of living a life of service and selflessness. May we all strive to follow in his footsteps and make a positive difference in the world around us, just as he did. Rest in peace, Fr. Paul, and thank you for everything!
