Dear Xaverians @SFX,
Most Marist Brothers who have dedicated their lives to youth education in our Alma Maters are resting in eternal peace at Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Cemetery. A visit to the Brothers' graveyard will be held annually with a name "Piety Recess", indicating our expression of piety towards the reverend Brothers, during this occasion as a recess, or retreat, from our hustling life. It is a chance for us Xaverians to stop for a while and recollect the devotion and sacrifice of the Brothers.

The SFXC Alumni Association USA chapter here in San Francisco got the sad news that our beloved teacher Mr. Chan Wai Him (John Chan) passed away on Feb 19, 2014 at home in Milpitas, California. I am sure some of you knew him well. John was our F1A form master in 1962-1963. Attached is a photo of him on the school album 1962-1963.
FYI... as obtained from John's family is the link to the orbituary.
On behalf of the alumni here in the SF Bay Area, we have sent flowers and our condolences to the family.
John is always in our thoughts and prayers.
Hi SFX Alumni,
Our Fund Raising for Bro. Gregory (Marist Schools) in Kenya has been a bit slow and worrisome, at about half the pace of last year. In order not to disappoint our adopted students we pledge to help, we earnestly ask every SFX Old Boy to donate to achieve our goal of 140 scholarships of US$200 each. We can easily succeed if each of us donate just a small amount. Last year we had exceeded our goal!
The needs and hardships of missions are real - Bro. Gregory's recent email exposed 2 inconvenient truths. 1) He was knocked out of internet communication for a long period because his computer crashed and there was no professional help anywhere nearby. 2) Their students had to do fix-up and maintenance work on their classrooms before the new school year could start.
Please read all about our Campaign on our web page: http://www.sfxboys.com/brogregory4.htm
Let's not forget the alternatives for those young students not going to the Marist schools will be a life of manual labor in the fields, the markets or on the streets - a life of Great Expectations snuffed out ab ovo!
Please help generously!
