It is with great sadness that the Mercy Associates announce the passing of Fr. Bernard Eager on Sunday 28th June 2020.
Fr Eager was Chaplain to the Mercy Associates for seven years but reluctantly had to retire in 2007 because he took on responsibility for another parish whilst not being in the best of health. He was a gentle person, absolutely dedicated to the Associates and encouraged and inspired us on many occasions and in many ways. After he retired, he continued to support us any way he could, especially saying Mass at Regional Days.
Eternal rest grant unto him, Oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him, may he rest in peace.
