Committed to impacting positively on the lives of people made poor

In Memory: Br. Peter Cole

Posted on 01 June 2018

ERD was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Br. Peter Cole this past April.

Br. Peter had recently returned to his native Australia after nearly three decades spent living and serving in East Africa. Lovingly referred to as ‘Mzee’ (Swahili for elder) of the community, Br. Peter was a man full of spirit and spent his life in service to people made poor. Br. Peter will be very sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know and work with him, and his life and commitment to Edmund Rice Mission and the poor people of Kenya will continue to inspire many for years to come.

Our deepest sympathies extend to Br. Peter’s family, brothers and many friends, young and old. May he Rest in Peace.
