As announced in the obituary of Wednesday?s Philippine Inquirer, a memorial Mass for Fr. Braun will be celebrated at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, 6 February in the Oratory of St. Ignatius, Loyola House of Studies, Loyola Heights, Q.C. Fr. Provincial will preside.
Fr. Braun taught and was Minister at Ateneos in Davao [1952-1955, 1962-1963) and Tuguegarao [1955-1962]. Health problems forced a three-year stay at Canisius High School in Buffalo, New York. He then returned to Manila and was assigned to Xavier House [1966-68] as Asst. Director of the PJAA, Acting Province Treasurer and Province
Secretary. Though Fr. Gerry physically left the Philippines in 1968, he remained a member of and continued to serve the PHI Province with great dedication for more than three decades at the Philippine desk of the Jesuit Seminary and Mission Bureau in New York. May he rest in the Lord’s peace!
