Ave Maria!

On May 29, 2015, Father Gabriel Maria Polo, following a heart attack, died in Consolation (Philippines). He was born September 3, 1972 in Irosin Sorsogon (Philippines), he made his First Vows May 18, 1996 and he was ordained priest April 25, 2003. Already assigned in the past to the community of Anapolis (Brazil) and Stoke On Trent (England) he was the Guardian and the Father master of the postulants in Naga (Philippines). We invite all the communities to pray and the priests to celebrate the Holy Mass for the repose of his soul. We entrust the deceased confriar to the Immaculate Gate of Heaven, sure to have a new intercessor before God for the Institute, especially for the Delegation of the Philippines.

The footage in this video is from his stay in Stoke on Trent. We will miss you Fr. Gabriel.

Requiescat in peace!

  • Ave Maria! Thank you for this lovely tribute to a very good friar, the late Fr. Gabriel. It brings back happy memories to me of our time together in Stoke. May the Lord have Mercy on him.

    Thank you for remembering Fr. Gabriel’s Anniversary in this lovely video. We in Stoke especially remember his lovely smile. The congregation of St. Joseph’s in Stoke-on-Trent remember all the Franciscans who stayed awhile with us with very fond memories. A very big thank you to them all for setting us on the road to gain grants for us to repair this truly wonderful church for the service of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
    Rest in Peace Fr. Gabriel.

    Janet Cartlidge.
