In Memory of
Rev. Sean Patrick BURKE, MM, MBE, JP
(1946 – 2009)
In memory of Helping Hand’s former Chairman and a member since Helping Hand’s inception in 1978 who left us suddenly on 5th May 2009.
Father Burke was a gentle, kind and big-hearted man who touched our lives. He was a man of God whose life was a model of selfless devotion. Sean’s kindness, love and generosity to others shone through and was an inspiration to all who met him. Many people have cause to be thankful that he came into their lives; those he helped, and those he influenced by his quiet example.
Sean will always be in our hearts and his incredible contribution to the care of the elderly in Hong Kong will live on.
He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all of us. May he rest in peace.
The Executive Committee, Members,
Staff and Elderly of Helping Hand
