“All to Jesus through Mary, all to Mary for Jesus” was the motto of St Marcellin Champagnat, founder of Marist Brothers, a religious community which follows Jesus in the way that Mary did.
One of the important feast days of the Blessed Mother Mary, “Our Lady of Guadalupe”, is celebrated on 12 Dec. It is on this day that a faithful Marist Brother is laid to his final resting place. Br John Lek, FMS was 77.
During the funeral mass, Fr Adrian Yeo emphasized that Br John’s personal mission is to make a difference in the lives of others, stemming from his tremendous love for God. His failing health didn’t deter him from this mission. He chose to continue serving in Maris Stella High and in Catholic Kindergarten.

Eternal rest grant upon Br John Lek, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen
